Something new I learned today: Pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedure Section 425.14, no plaintiff may claim punitive damages in a complaint against a religious corporation or corporation sole (which the Catholic Church, under each individual biship, is classified as) unless the court enters an order allowing an amended pleading where such a claim can be made. My guess is that Cardinal Roger "Let's-suggest-priests-be-allowed-to-get-married-so-we-don't-have-anymore-sex-abuse-incidents" Mahoney is well aware of this rule.
