Correction: Trump-Offshore Drilling story

In some versions of a story May 3 about a lawsuit seeking to maintain a drilling ban in the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, The Associated Press reported erroneously the name of one plaintiff. It is the Center for Biological Diversity, not the Center for Biological Development.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Groups sue to stop Trump from renewing offshore drilling

Environmental and Alaska Native groups are suing to maintain a U.S. ban on oil and gas exploration in most of the Arctic Ocean and select areas of the Atlantic after President Donald Trump took steps to put the waters back in play for offshore drilling
