Lawyer Encouraging Catholics to Withhold Church Donations in Support of Mount Cashel Victims

September 28, 2020

A well known local lawyer has come out swinging after the Archdiocese of St. John’s announced it will be seeking to overturn a decision declaring the Roman Catholic Episcopal Corporation liable for sexual abuse at Mount Cashel Orphanage in the 1950s.

Lynn Moore, a partner with the law firm Morris Martin Moore, says she’s enraged by that response.

She took to Facebook with a message to practicing Catholics, asking them to withhold their donations to the church, saying that survivors of child sexual abuse should be supported.

Every Roman Catholic she knows feels that children abused by the Christian Brothers deserve compensation and do not deserve to be dragged through “protracted litigation.”

She believes that “higher-ups” in the Church appear to have the attitude of “litigate until the plaintiffs die.”

Moore calls it “so wrong” that the victims have to continue to with the weight of this over their heads. She says if the people rise up, then maybe they can make a difference.
