Attorney John Manly, Who Deposed Cardinal Mahony, Responds To LA Times Article









NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to today's Los Angles Times story Mahony Tried to Conceal Abuse, John Manly, an attorney who has deposed former Cardinal Roger Mahony in sex abuse cases involving the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, issued the following statement:

The documents revealed in court demonstrate clearly and without question that the Archdiocese was engaged and remains engaged in an alleged conspiracy to protect pedophile priests and the Roman Catholic Hierarchy. Cardinal Roger Mahony is at the center of this conduct. The question that needs to be answered is, "Did law enforcement, and specifically its leadership in Los Angeles, either completely miss these crimes or did they ignore them?" These documents have been in the possession of the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office for years and yet no action, and little, if any criticism has been leveled against Cardinal Mahony and the Hierarchy.

It is reasonable to ask why and how such an alleged miscarriage of justice was allowed to occur. Cardinal Mahony has been deposed on three separate occasions by me and my law firm. In addition, we have deposed Bishop Curry, the Archdiocese's chief advisor on sex abuse cases, who features prominently in the documents released last week. A review of these depositions demonstrates substantial inconsistencies with their sworn answers and the conduct illustrated in the documents.
