Onward To Trial, Bishop Finn

To begin with, a person’s lawyer is entitled to locate and utilize any lawful defense. So I don’t have a problem with Bishop Finn’s lawyers suggesting that mandatory reporting statutes are vague. It’s an ironic twist that the Planned Parenthood legal team used the same defense in 2006. And this case was cited in yesterday’s legal ruling that Bishop Finn will have to stand trial. The news was picked up yesterday by CNS.

And so we enter another period of quiet before the scheduled trial on 24 September. Meanwhile, I see a support site has been opened and is updated regularly.
