Press Event: Lawsuit to be Filed in Michael Weber Sexual Abuse Scandal

Virginia man says Diocese kept quiet about Weber’s sexual abuse history, causing him to be abused as child

Diocese of St. Cloud and the former deacon and United Way board member to be named as defendants

At a news conference on Tuesday in St. Paul, attorneys for a Virginia man, who lived in St. Cloud as a child, will announce a lawsuit against the Diocese of St. Cloud and Michael Weber.  The lawsuit, to be filed in Hennepin County District Court, will address sexual abuse suffered by the child while vacationing with his family at a Minnesota lake. The victim, identified in the complaint as “John Doe HT”, wishes to keep his identity confidential, but will read a statement and answer questions from the media by phone.

Jeff Anderson is widely recognized as a pioneer in sexual abuse litigation and a champion of survivors of childhood sexual abuse. In nearly four decades as a litigator, Jeff’s efforts have obtained justice for thousands of survivors of childhood sexual abuse.
