According to the San Diego Reader news website, Attorney Irwin Zalkin and legal representatives for the Watchtower Society will make an appearance in a San Diego, California District Court on September 15, 2017. They will be participating in a hearing to discuss a Watchtower motion to seal documents requested by the court as evidence.
The evidence is clear (thanks to the extensive work and research of the Australian Royal Commission) that Jehovah’s Witnesses have not only failed to protect the children in their midst – but have also shrugged their responsibilities and resisted any efforts to make needed changes in their policies.
