Can KM lawyers be held liable (or disbarred) for violating the law?
Assuming information in the AP article is true (which I feel certain is the case), and assuming the laws in most states require persons who know of child abuse to report it to the proper authorities, are KM lawyers breaking the law by intervening and instructing local leaders not to go to the police or to child welfare agencies?
Perhaps there's a way KM attorneys could be held liable or even be disbarred for dodging the law. In addition, by instructing local leaders to keep information within the church, I'd argue they're contributing to the continued abuse of the victims.
Certainly TSCC as a corporation is dodgy and dishonest, but TSCC has put KM in place as its protector. Maybe the protectors need to be held accountable.
