Dr Andrew Morrison - Sex Abuse and the Catholic Church

Dr Andrew Morrison (RFD) SC, who represented sex abuse survivor John Ellis in court, spoke to Sydney Atheists about the Catholic Church's use of the Ellis defence to avoid paying compensation claims to sex abuse victims.

Dr Morrison is a prominent member of the Australian Lawyers Alliance, and has assisted them in their submission to the Child Abuse Royal Commission, and has appeared in various media outlets such as the AM program. The report of the NSW Special Commission of Inquiry is available on the NSW Premier and Cabinet website.

  1. I perhaps should have included my Blog's address ( I did doctoral studies in Theology here in France (Institut Catholique, Paris) and have lived here for forty years, after fifteen years in the Franciscan Order, seven of them as a priest, and ten years in the States as a Professor of Theology and Diocesan Director of Religious Education. I'll be in Sydney to visit family and friends in February, 2015.
