Diocese of Fargo and Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity (SOLT) failed to remove Fr. Michael Wright after Survivor came forward regarding sexual assault. (Fargo, North Dakota) –

On Thursday in Fargo, the law firms of Bradshaw & Bryant, PLLC and O’Keeffe O’Brien Lyson Foss will:

• Speak publicly for the first time about the sexual abuse by Fr. Michael Wright at St. Ann’s Catholic Church in Belcourt, ND

• Discuss how the Diocese responded by blaming the Survivor and shipping Fr. Michael Wright back to Texas to the SOLT community without an investigation

• Argue that the response of SOLT to send Fr. Michael Wright to counseling as a resolution following the sexual assault was inadequate and reprehensible

• Address troubling public safety danger and lack of information regarding the whereabouts and status of Fr. Michael Wright

• Demand the Diocese of Fargo to disclose their list of known offending priests • Call to North Dakota legislators to open up the statute of limitations so that offenders can no longer be shielded from civil remedies
