Retraction, Correction and Apology


(New York, NY) –The law firm of Jeff Anderson & Associates released information identifying the incorrect individual as being subject to allegations of child sex abuse.


•    The Anderson Report on Sexual Abuse in the Diocese of Brooklyn released on September 10, 2019, incorrectly and erroneously identified Sr. Kathleen McKinney CSJ, a member of the Sisters of St. Joseph, as being subject to allegations of abuse.
•    In fact, the allegations should have referred to Sr. Kathleen McKinney CSFN, a member of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, who was identified in a lawsuit titled Ark68Doe vs. Diocese of Brooklyn et al., Supreme Court, Index Number 517909/2019. The plaintiff in that matter alleged wrongdoing associated with St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Jamaica, New York.
•    Sr. Kathleen McKinney, CSJ was not involved and/or associated with St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Jamaica New York.
•    Jeff Anderson & Associates apologizes to Sr. Kathleen McKinney CSJ and will be providing her with a letter confirming the mistake and deeply apologizing. The firm will make other amends as may be requested to mitigate any harm done.
