An article in the July 2 edition of The Progress incorrectly combined two articles under the headline “Lawsuit against coroner dismissed.” The article should have ended with the sentences: “The motion for dismissal was filed by Westbrook’s attorney, Luther Sutter of Benton. Sutter did not immediately return a phone call requesting comment.”
