Canon Lawyers make a decision:

The Canon Law Society of America, meeting in Cincinnati this week, voted Wednesday to form a task force to study ways that the group can help the Roman Catholic Church resolve its crisis caused by priests abusing young people. That may not sound exciting to most people, but to canon lawyers, it's just short of earthshaking. "Because we're an academic society, we tend to talk," said the Rev. Patrick Lagges, who today steps down as the society's secretary. "When we get really excited, we commission a task force. When we get moderately excited, we commission a study."
