A motion filed Thursday could put the brakes on a possible deposition of St. Paul-Minneapolis Archbishop John Nienstedt regarding clergy sexual abuse in his archdiocese.

Doyle rebuts Cardinal George regarding Chicago abuse files

He takes particular aim at the cardinal's discussion of the case of Dan McCormack and his denial that he acted contrary to the findings of his own review board.
