Milwaukee archdiocese balks at state abuse probe
June 04, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: The Archdiocese of Milwaukee has announced that it will not comply with a request from Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul to hand over documents connected with sex-abuse complaints. The archdiocese argues that the documents were sealed by the federal bankruptcy court that oversaw the archdiocesan case in 2012. Archdiocesan lawyers also claim that the attorney general lacks jurisdiction to investigate any abuse cases, since they would have been handled by local rather than state prosecutors.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
