"Stand up and fight" (Asian Business, Sept. 11, 2000) (int'l edition)
"Stand up and fight" (Asian Business, Sept. 11) should have said that Chikara Minami, a plaintiff in a consumer-liability lawsuit against Mitsubishi Motors Corp., was the main witness in the trial. His three friends did not testify, nor did the prosecution present expert testimony as stated in the story. Also, the story said liabilities have never exceeded $50,000 in the cases that have come to a ruling since 1995. It should have said rarely, since there was one valued at $613,000.
