CWN Editor's Note: A scheduled court appearance by Archbishop Philip Wilson of Adelaide, Australia, was postponed because the prelate has recently had surgery to implant a pacemaker. A lawyer for the archbishop—who faces charges for failure to report sexual abuse—said that his client might be able to appear in court next week. However, he suggested that the archbishop’s ability to testify may be limited by medications and by Alzheimer’s disease.
