CWN Editor's Note: More than 220 people filed suit against the Archdiocese of Agana, Guam, in sex-abuse cases involving priests and teachers in parochial schools. The suits come before an August 15 deadline for claims, imposed by a court after the archdiocese filed for bankruptcy protection. Archbishop Anthony Apuron, who was removed from the Agana archdiocese in 2016 and convicted by a Vatican tribunal, had quashed reports of sexual abuse.
