Statement by Barbara Dorris of St. Louis, Outreach Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 503 0003, bdorris@SNAPnetwork.org)
Thanks to civil litigation and brave victims, more truth is finally emerging about the horrendous acts of Bill Cosby. We’re grateful a courageous woman sued him in 2005. We’re grateful to the Associated Press for seeking the truth. And we’re grateful that a judge has unsealed this damaging deposition of Cosby from that suit.
There are three “take-aways” here.
