Minnesota archbishop appoints judge to supervise sex-abuse response

August 26, 2014

Archbishop John Nienstedt of St. Paul-Minneapolis has appointed a veteran jurist to supervise handling of sex-abuse complaints within the archdiocese.

Judge Timothy O’Malley, who will become the director of a newly formed office of ministerial standards, promised to make the archdiocese a model for the handling of abuse complaints and the protection of children. He acknowledged that ‘there has been some disappointment that the response hasn’t been as purposeful and organized as I think it can be.”
