Clearing the record

A Sept. 2 story incorrectly summarized former state Treasurer Rob McCord's 2015 guilty plea in a corruption case. McCord pleaded guilty to two felony counts of attempts to extort campaign donations from a law firm and a property-management company. Contributions from businessman Richard Ireland were not cited as part of the guilty plea.

An article in Friday's Business section about a lawsuit over reassessments of commercial properties in Philadelphia misspelled the name of an attorney. His name is Lawrence Arem.
