CWN Editor's Note: Bishop Paul Russell, an auxiliary of the Detroit archdiocese, has removed himself from public ministry while the Vatican investigates a sex-abuse complaint against him.

Bishop Russell was named as defendant in a lawsuit charging that he molested a young man while he was serving as a priest in the Boston archdiocese in 1989. The bishop denies the charge.
