When did HAC pronounce Dave restored?

Anklebone, you are correct. When John Wilkerson gave an ovation for Dave Hyles, no one objected. When HAC pronounced Dave Hyles unscripturally  restored, no one objected. When HAC awarded eight ungodly students academic awards they hadn't earned, no one objected.

One incident listed in the articles is relevant today, IMO.
The incident where current Pastor Wilkerson indicated he would get back to her, and she's still waiting.
A little disappointing to me because I have/had a higher opinion of him and expected more.

The way I read that, he asked her to assemble a group of people to have a discussion.  Then it stated that she is has not heard back from him.  I would assume that to mean that the ball is in her lap.

You read it wrong. It's his job to follow up on this.

The fact that she has not heard back from him in no way indicates that he has not dealt with the issue within the leadership of the church. How could he possibly make DH make this wrong right?

All he can do is make sure that any  situations like this in the future (God forbid) are dealt with properly.

"For decades and even centuries, the church has preached a form of “forgiveness” that excludes justice for survivors and breeds a lack of accountability for offenders. Male church leaders have indoctrinated congregations with this warped theology of forgiveness, fostering a culture of silence and deceit."

From "The American Conservative":

"We may read these stories of sexual abuse in churches, and tell ourselves that if something like that happened in our church, we would stand up for what is right. Maybe so. Maybe you would. But if you think most of the people in your church would do that, or stand by those who did, your optimism is unwarranted."

"One of the hardest life lessons I ever had to learn is that in the main, people prefer to be deceived. They would rather believe a lie that upholds their comfortable lives than face a truth that challenges it."
