Starr Report Footnotes

Web-posted Wednesday, September 16, 1998

The following footnotes were missing, incomplete, contained information that ultimately was deleted from the final version of Starr's referral or did not refer to any citation in the text of the referral published in Saturday's edition. In each case, the footnote deletions from the final report resulted in a skipped footnote in the published text. The report is available on in its final, corrected version.

New footnote information from the final version is in Italic font.
