Notes from Nashville
Eight days ago, "about" six days following the nuncio's call notifying Choby of his appointment as bishop, a settlement was announced to a sex-abuse negligence lawsuit against the Nashville diocese which was slated to go to trial in March. The suit, filed by two anonymous plaintiffs, had been wending its way through the Tennessee court system over six years of what the Nashville Tennessean called "bitter litigation." A monetary amount has not been revealed.
Interesting timetable there. Is it all just one big coincidence? We can only wonder....
