Jesus Take The Wheel: Catholic Church Lawyers Demand Abuse Victim Repay Settlement Money!?!??
Reader, the Catholic Church is in damage control after one of its lawyers ['Tim Abbott from Walsh and Blair'] lawyers demanded that a child sex abuse survivor repay an out-of-court settlement because she spoke to the media about her case. Lawyers for the Diocese of Wagga Wagga also sought a public apology from the woman for "untruths" she told to the local newspaper. But after being contacted by ABC yesterday, the Bishop of Wagga Wagga said he did not instruct the lawyer to make the demands and he would not be pursuing abuse survivor Gina Swannell for the money.
