Press Release: Survivors’ Attorneys Jeff Anderson and Steve Boyd to Address Diocese of Rochester’s Decision to File Bankruptcy

Attorneys For Survivors to Address Diocese of Rochester’s Disappointing Choice to File Bankruptcy

Bishop Matano’s Legal Tactic is an Attempt to Conceal the Truth

(Rochester, NY) – Today in Rochester, survivors’ attorneys Jeff Anderson and Steve Boyd will:

  • Discuss the decision of Bishop Salvatore Matano and the Diocese of Rochester to file Chapter 11 bankruptcy after facing dozens of clergy abuse lawsuits filed under New York’s Child Victims Act. This is a legal tactic they are using to prevent jury trials and an attempt to stop the truth from being revealed;
  • Demand that Bishop Matano release all the names of every credibly accused priest who has worked in the Diocese, as well as information on the alleged perpetrators’ history, current whereabouts and what the Diocese knew about alleged child sexual abuse.

Today, Thursday, September 12, 2019 at 3:00 PM (ET)

Diocese of Rochester Pastoral Center
1150 Buffalo Road
