Judge Robert L. Holzberg is overseeing the Accountability Investigation by reviewing a comprehensive analysis of claims of clerical sexual abuse of minors, the Diocese’s knowledge of such abuse and its response to allegations and information concerning the alleged abuse.
Work has begun immediately and is expected to be completed by Spring 2019.
