Diocese of New Ulm Continues to Keep Secret the
Identities of 12 Priests Accused of Child Sexual Abuse

Survivors, advocates pursue transparency and disclosure

What:  At a news conference on Wednesday in St. Paul, attorneys Jeff Anderson and Mike Finnegan will:

• Announce the filing of a sexual abuse lawsuit in Brown County on behalf of two former altar boys, Doe 37 and Doe 38, who were sexually abused by Father Michael Skoblik at St. Joseph’s parish in Silver Lake, Minnesota. The lawsuit includes a claim of public nuisance naming the Diocese of New Ulm as the defendant.
• Demand Bishop John M. LeVoir release the names of 12 priests who have been accused of child sexual abuse in the Diocese of New Ulm. To-date, New Ulm is the only diocese in Minnesota who refuses to release the names of credibly accused priests.
