FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CHRISTOPHER NAPLES RESPONDS TO PRESS RELEASE ISSUED
BY THE DIOCESE OF TRENTON ON JUNE 3, 2014
Christopher Naples responds to the release as follows:

1. The Diocese of Trenton claims that it “worked hard to try to resolve the case, as we
have resolved others, but without success” and that it renews its offer to work with him to
resolve his case. 

“In fact, the Diocese of Trenton has just moved for the second time to dismiss
Chris’s lawsuit in its entirety on a legal technicality,” said his attorney Raeann Warner.

In fact, the Diocese of Trenton successfully moved to dismiss Chris Naples’ Delaware
case on a legal technicality called “lack of personal jurisdiction,” which means the Delaware
Court did not have the ability to hear a case against the Diocese of Trenton because of its lack of
“contacts” with the state of Delaware, rather than getting to the merits of his case and what it was
really about – that the Diocese of Trenton through its agents and employees knew he was being
abused and did nothing to stop it or protect him. Chris re-filed his case in New Jersey. 

On May 29th, 2014 the Diocese of Trenton again moved to dismiss Chris’s case – again on a legal
technicality – claiming that Chris has filed his case too late. The motion to dismiss filed by the
Diocese of Trenton will be heard on June 20, 2014. The Diocese of Trenton is in fact working to
get rid of Chris’s case again on a technicality and prevent a fair discovery process whereby Chris
Naples can finally confront the Diocese of Trenton employees and agents through the discovery
and deposition process.

2. The Diocese claims it offered to arrange for counseling and an opportunity to meet
with the Diocesan Review Board.

In fact, Monsignor Walter Nolan and Maureen Fitzsimmons told Chris that he did not
have to meet with the review board. Regarding its offer of counseling, Chris was not willing to
sign a required medical release permitting the Diocese access to all his medical records, nor did
he want the Diocese dictating who he could treat with.

Chris Naples needed to clear up this record. “Chris Naples wants to thank his supporters
for the overwhelming encouragement and support he has received since the article in the Star
Ledger appeared. He appreciates it very much,” said his attorney Raeann Warner.

About victimsofrapebythercc

The Catechism offers a clear moral teaching: "Rape is the forcible violation of the sexual intimacy of another person. It does injury to justice and charity. Rape deeply wounds the respect, freedom, and physical and moral integrity to which every person has a right. It causes grave damage that can mark the victim for life. It is always an intrinsically evil act. Graver still is the rape of children committed by parents (incest) or those responsible for the education of the children entrusted to them." (no. 2356) Note that rape is "an intrinsically evil act," meaning that it is evil at its very root, nothing justifies it, and it is objectively a mortal sin. An evil act was done against me, a crime, by a priest at St Thomas More Parish in Durham, NH. An evil and a crime I will no longer keep silent about. Those who perpetrate crimes against children, especially those of the Roman Catholic Church, should all be punished for their crimes against children. Anything less would be criminal.
