Doe v. Holy See, Goes Forward
On the last day of the term, the U.S. Supreme Court denied the appeal of the Holy See (the Vatican, the Holy Roman Catholic Church) seeking dismissal from a child sex abuse suit as a Sovereign Power--an argument I discussed in the first days of this "blawg." This is a good development in the evolution of the Rule of Law. Expect St. Paul clergy sex abuse lawyer, Jeff Anderson to seek the Pope's deposition in coming months and the hysterical arguments over those discovery efforts. At the link you can read the Chicago Sun Times' background story on the case that was filed more than 8 years ago!
