US Court: Victims of Priest Sex Abuse Can Sue Vatican | Stop Family Violence, 16 May 2011 [cached]
Bill Crane, 43, Oregon director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, said he hopes last week's ruling will cause Pope Benedict XVI to "rein in" his defense lawyers, stop the delaying tactics and honor his own admonition to "do everything possible" to help child sex abuse victims heal.
"If he really wants to do what he said he did during his visit to the United States last year -- promote reconciliation and healing -- he will not appeal this ruling," said Crane, a landscaper and priest abuse survivor from Sandy.

"That's not moving in the direction of disclosure.

"It was a powerful encounter where victim-survivors came together to identify ways to support each other, encourage other victims to join us, and develop a game plan for challenging civil authorities to act," said Bill Crane, Jr., SNAP State Director from Oregon."Based on the poor response of the Bishops to victims, and their non-compliance with the Dallas Charter, we must seek recourse through common-sense revisions in state law by legislators, and through tougher enforcement of the law by prosecutors to make perpetrators accountable", said Crane of Clackamas, OR.
