In this episode of Keep It Legal, we sat down with Louisiana personal injury attorney Soren Gisleson of Herman Herman Katz to review details surrounding the many sexual abuse claims against the New Orleans Catholic Diocese.

According to the firm, Archbishops Philip Hannan, Francis Schulte, Alfred Hughes and Gregory Aymond knew clergy members were sexually abusing hundreds of child victims over a period of several decades, and they did nothing. The Archdiocese recently filed bankruptcy in an attempt to continue concealing the truth about what happened.
