Media Advisory: St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson’s Deposition Testimony to be Released Monday

Deposition of St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson to be Publicly Released Tomorrow

(St. Paul, MN) – At a news conference Monday in St. Paul, MN attorneys Jeff Anderson and Mike Finnegan will:

  • Release video clips and the deposition transcript of the current Archdiocese of St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson taken on May 23, 2014, as part of a civil lawsuit in Minnesota. Carlson was ordained in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis in 1970 and rose to the position of Auxiliary Bishop until 1994.
  •  Discuss the disturbing and alarming sworn testimony given by Carlson who chose not to recall important events he was personally involved in including advising former Winona Bishop Loras Watters “not to remember” when Watters’ gave his own testimony.
  • Demonstrate how the documents show a conscious choice, made by then-Bishop Carlson, to protect offenders and conceal crimes.
