Abuse survivor sues California bishops, dioceses, seeking offenders’ names

A lawsuit against the California bishops and 11 dioceses in California, including the archdioceses of Los Angeles and San Francisco, for covering up child sexual abuse was filed Oct. 2 by survivor Tom Emens and Jeff Anderson & Associates.

Emens isn’t filing the lawsuit for money. He’s requesting the release of the names and documented histories on all clerical offenders in each diocese.

“I just want the truth. The truth is far more valuable,” Emens said. “I’m just one person. There are thousands of other victims out there.”
