The Catholic Church here in Australia yesterday admitted in the Supreme Court that they knew about priest Ridsdale’s molesting hundreds of boys as far back as 1975. Thereby admitting liability. They just shifted him from parish to parish so he could continue molesting children.

They have opened up the door to hundreds of lawsuits here in Oz and it will cost them millions of dollars in compensation and no doubt cause many faithful to abandon their religion...

The Catholic Church in Australia is participating in the redress scheme which simplifies claiming for victims, is a private process, limits liability for institutions and avoids the need for lawsuits.

Watchtower is one of the few on the list that does not intend to join. They prefer the courts, which isn't sensible as it does not limit liability and is highly visible to the public.
