Saint Paul, MN – Today five brave survivors of clergy sexual abuse and cover-up – three emerging from their “John Doe” status and using their names for the first time – filed suit against the Vatican, charging nuisance and public endangerment, including allowing known offenders to continue public ministry through cover-up and reassignment.

Our law firm is launching a bold action against the Vatican designed to disclose and disgorge all the names of all the offenders that only they know – thousands of offenders and the histories behind them, including offenders who are involved in cover-up and are still at large, such as Archbishop John Nienstedt, Cardinal McCarrick, Archbishop Apuron and other top officials.  It is also on behalf of five courageous survivors, three of whom have never been public because they were abused by Curtis Wehmeyer and concealed by Archbishop Nienstedt, who is still at large and given license to cont...

In this video, survivor advocates Christopher, Kristen, Stacey, Michelle and Asja sport their best denim to raise awareness for Denim Day – an annual, all-day protest that began after the Italian Supreme Court overturned a rape conviction because in the eyes of the court, since the victim was wearing tight jeans, she must have helped her attacker, implying consent. The following day, the women of Italian Parliament wore jeans in solidarity with the victim. In this spirit we invite you to join us on April 24 – put on a pair of jeans, stand in solidarity with survivors, and speak out against...

The safety of our children must come first.It’s a simple, direct, crystal clear statement. It’s one that we’ve put to clergy members in the form of a question in clergy child sex abuse cases many times over the years: “Father, wouldn’t you agree that the safety of our children must come first?” They’ve almost always answered in the affirmative. How could they not? Distilled this simply, the statement is an absolute no-brainer.Yet, the Catholic Church hierarchy ignores this truth to protect itself, making excuses, convoluted arguments and specious assertions of blame for sexual abuse of child...
