Last week, Archbishop Cardinal George was questioned in a videotaped trial testimony in the sexual abuse case involving former Roman Catholic priest Daniel McCormack. The video deposition is a precaution taken due to the Cardinal’s advanced age and current health status.
The Archbishop’s videotape testimony can be shown to the jury should any of the 19 pending cases against McCormack go to trial. According to a recent statement from Law Offices of Eugene K. Hollander:
Because of a protective order entered by the Court, the Law Offices of Eugene K. Hollander cannot comment on the substance of the Cardinal’s testimony at this time. We can report, however, that the Cardinal was questioned for about 6 hours, by two of the Plaintiffs’ attorneys, including Eugene K. Hollander.
The Cardinal’s deposition is set to continue today, June 3.
