pontiff “removed an outspoken critic of abortion and same-sex marriage from a powerful post within the Church..."

The statement above is true and is correct reporting.

But it says he WAS head of the Vatican’s highest court. That is false. The reporting is false.

It’s not “true and correct”. He wasn’t “removed” from the Congregation of Bishops, his membership thereof was “not renewed”. There is a completely different meaning there, albeit rather subtle a difference.

Also, he is still part of the “Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura – the equivalent of the Supreme Court for the Catholic Church.”

Sounds like to me he’s still in the more important position.
