On the advice of legal counsel and because it is ongoing litigation, Bp. Robert Banks said he feels it is best not to talk about the specifics of his deposition June 4 in Boston in the case of former Boston priest and child abuser John Geoghan.
Instead, he released the following statement: "Most of my testimony focused on documents related to my work when I served from 1984 to 1990 as Vicar for Administration for the Archdiocese of Boston. I answered each and every question as best I could. I understand that the plaintiffs' attorney will be requesting further testimony from me. It's my intention to cooperate to the fullest extent possible."
