On March 25, The Associated Press carried an incorrect report from a spokeswoman for the Joffrey Ballet company on the cause of death of Robert Joffrey, director of the company. Joffrey, 57, died March 25 at New York University Hospital. Pennie Curry, a spokeswoman for the company, said that Joffrey suffered from a liver ailment caused by medication he was taking for asthma and a muscle condition. "He died of liver, kidney and respiratory failure, period. Asthma medication had nothing to do with it," said Terrie LoCicero, a spokeswoman for the hospital.
