Retraction and Correction

     An item published in the August 30, 2011, edition of this page under the headline “Guide Dog Group Wants Man Brought To Heel,” which reported on the allegations in a civil complaint filed on August 25, 2011, by the OccuPaws Guide Dog Association in Wisconsin’s Dane County Circuit Court, contained an inaccurate description of the allegations against Douglas Weil, one of the defendants named in that complaint. Contrary to the report, the complaint does not allege that Mr. Weil charged the association $25,500 to train a single dog. Courthouse News retracts this statement in its report.
     Instead, the report should have indicated that, according to an invoice attached as an exhibit to the complaint, Mr. Weil charged the Association $25,500 for the training and in-home placement of two guide dogs (“Hanna” and “Weily”), as well as training for a third dog (“Hooch”) and a balance due for a fourth dog (“Gilbert”).
     Courthouse News apologizes for the error.
