Disgraced Former Cardinal also Faces Criminal Charges Tomorrow

Attorney to Newark Archbishop: Release Names, Update List of Accused Priests

  • A retired employee who was assaulted by his then-boss McCarrick.

The attorneys of Jeff Anderson & Associates will also:

  • Release a list of 46 individuals accused of sexual misconduct who are NOT on the Archdiocese of Newark’s ‘credibly accused’ list of clerics and may have access to children right now, and
