Catholic Archdiocese Accuses Law Firm of Planting Spy
October 23, 2010
This would be good for a made-for-tv spy movie! It has almost all proper ingredients namely: The Church, betrayal, law and order and intrigue except sex… but you cannot have it all!
St. Louis-based law firm with an office in Belleville planted a spy and encouraged the former attorney for a rebel parish fighting the Archdiocese of St. Louis over property to violate, “… every relevant ethical duty and breached virtually every rule in the Rules of Professional Conduct,” according to a lawsuit filed in St. Clair County in Illinois.
Lawyers for the archdiocese planted the spy and caused a former lawyer for St. Stanislaus Kostka Church in St. Louis to turn against his ex-clients in the archdiocese’ efforts to regain control of a church and its property, according to the lawsuit.
