(Duluth, MN) – Tomorrow at 1:00 PM in St. Louis County District Court, the Diocese of Duluth will ask the Court to issue a protective order to keep confidential the files and documents pertaining to clergy accused of sexual misconduct in the Diocese.

The Duluth Diocese released a list of 17 names of priests with credible allegations of child sexual abuse in December 2013 and its request for a protective order demonstrates a step in the wrong direction. Keeping clergy abuse documents and testimony secret puts kids at risk.

*Jeff Anderson and Mike Finnegan, attorneys representing two sexual abuse survivors of Father John Nicholson and Father Robert Klein will be available to answer questions tomorrow afternoon immediately following the hearing.
