Survivors Network of
those Abused by Priests
Mississippi Supreme Court Ruling
May 5, 2005
Statement by David Clohessy of
St. Louis, national director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of
those Abused by Priests, a support group
"We're thrilled for these wounded but brave and persistent victims.
It's wonderful that the state's highest court is giving them the least
they deserve - their day in court.
They have suffered and continue to suffer irreparable harm yet are sticking
their necks out seeking to hold complicit church officials accountable
for these horrific crimes.
These courageous individuals deserve our gratitude. Mississippi is a safer
place because they found the strength to warn others about predator priests."
