There seems to be a dispute here on to points of fact:

SuzyQ, have you a link?

Ladyjane, have you an explanation?

I don't have any links, but being close to Boston, we got all the news. There never was a warrant out on Cardinal Law, because he was never in danger of being arrested. There was an ongoing investigation, and the Attorney General called Cardinal Law in to give testimony. He did that, and once he was cleared of anything that might have been criminal, and was free to go, he resigned as Bishop. He went to Maryland for a year, living in a monastery, in prayer.

I believe it was only after that time that he went to Rome, for good, to take up his position at St. Mary Major Basilica, which was already 'his' Church in Rome. Most, if not all, of the active Cardinals have a Church for which they are 'Pastors'. He was active Pastor there until he reached the age of 80, at which time he was no longer an active Cardinal. Now he is 'Pastor Emeritus' at St. Mary Major, where the supposed kerfuffle occurred.

Everyone knew where Bernie Law was; if there had been a warrant out on him, he could have been picked up at any time.
