Daily Journal

LOS ANGELES - Frustrated by what they claim are often-repeated inaccuracies in media coverage of the clergy abuse cases, lawyers for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles have started their own Web site to publicly rebut "myths the media tells you."
The Web site, la-clergycases.com, also offers background and current developments in both civil and criminal cases related to the clergy scandal, details of new policies adopted by the archdiocese to combat child abuse and a collection of links to church statements and legal documents.
"It lays out the legal strategy, provides updates and gives analysis and context on the issues involved," said archdiocese attorney Donald Woods, whose firm, Hennigan Bennett & Dorman, put up the site.
