On Friday, Feb. 8, 2008, The West Virginia Record printed a story by Lawrence Smith wich indicated that Clarksburg attorney David J. Romano currently was a party in a pending case before the West Virginia Supreme Court while more than eight years ago he, like many other attorneys, had been a supporter of Justice Joseph Albright's campaign for election to the Supreme Court and had contributed to that campaign.
The reason that The Record wrote the story in the first instance was because it believed that Attorney Romano was a party in the case pending before the Supreme Court of Appeals but this was inaccurate. The Record reporter failed to confirm the identity of the litigant who was "David A. Romano" by either contacting the litigant or Attorney Romano, or by reviewing available public databases which would have disclosed that the two individuals were not the same.
The Record regrets printing these inaccurate statements and The Record apologizes to David J. Romano for any problems it may have caused him.
