CWN Editor's Note: A court in Guam has dismissed a slander charge against Archbishop Anthony Apuron, while allowing proceedings to continue on a related charge of libel.

His lawyer argued that the prelate had the legal right to defend himself against the charges, and thus to say that the accusations were false.
