‘Whistle-blower’ sues KC Catholic Diocese, claims she was forced out of her job after offering help in the Rev. Shawn Ratigan child-porn case

  • The lawsuits keep coming.

Another lawsuit is being filed against Bishop Robert Finn and the Catholic Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph.

The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests sent out an e-mail today saying a “whistle-blower” is suing after being forced out of her job last month due to “her advocacy within the diocese on behalf of victims and changes in policy to prevent future abuses.” This all comes back to the Rev. Shawn Ratigan child-pornography case.

SNAP says Margaret Mata, a grant writer, is suing the diocese “to hold the (church officials) responsible for their retaliation, wrongful discharge and invasion of (her) privacy.”
