The Los Angeles Times corrected a correction May 19.

The Los Angeles Times originally published a correction on May 18 about its May 17 article “Court to review request of illegal immigrant to practice law.”  The May 18 correction read: “An article in the May 17 LATExtra section about the California Supreme Court considering a request by the state bar to allow an illegal immigrant to practice law said that Sergio C. Garcia had passed a written test and a moral examination. It was an oral examination.”

But, the correction was a no-go.

The May 19 correction of the May 18 correction read:  “A For the Record item in the May 18 Section A erroneously corrected a May 17 article about an illegal immigrant seeking to become a lawyer. As the original article correctly said, Sergio C. Garcia passed a moral examination; it was not an oral examination.”
