Milwaukee archdiocese negligent in abuse cases, appeals court confirms

Catholic World News - November 24, 2010

Affirming lower court judgments, the appeals court found that insurance coverage for the archdiocese did not apply to cases involving negligent misrepresentation.

    I thought the whole point of insurance was to cover you when you ARE negligent.
