Saint John’s learned earlier today of a possible lawsuit, which we plan to carefully review. We anticipate there may be news coverage of this tonight and tomorrow.
The individual named in the lawsuit was the subject of a press release by the abbey in July of 2006. [ View ]
Saint John’s takes the issue of sexual misconduct very seriously and over many years, has worked to ensure that policies and procedures on human rights are followed and enforced. Saint John’s policies are clear and longstanding: we do not tolerate sexual misconduct in any form.
