”One More Step: Gay marriage gets its day in Maryland’s high court,” (12/7) incorrectly reported that 17 people — one widower and eight couples — initiated the marriage equality case two years ago. The case was actually initiated by 19 people, comprised of one widower and nine couples. One couple in the case asked the American Civil Liberties Union and Equality Maryland to be removed from their media packets, press releases and Web sites, due to privacy concerns. There was no mention of this in the organizations’ materials.
