CWN Editor's Note: The proposal originally under consideration by the US bishops “would have established an independent lay-led commission to investigate allegations against bishops,” CNA reported. “The Cupich-Wuerl plan would instead send allegations against bishops to be investigated by their metropolitan archbishops, along with archdiocesan review boards.” Cardinal Cupich subsequently denied this report.
