Let me correct a misunderstanding:
I do not believe that Bob has ever advocated "ascending liability." I seem to be the one who advocated that. Actually I did not but due to a failure to communicate clearly, it appears that I was perceived to have advocated such. My position is, and has been:
If allegations should arise in the future against TS
both 3-ABN and/or the IL Conference potentially place themselves
in a position of liability for a failure to exercise due prudence
in protecting children today due to past allegations made against
him in the past, of which both the IL Conference and 3-ABN have
been informed. Yes, I am not an attorney. But, I have discussed
this position with those who are attorneys. I have been told
that my position is legally correct.
I do not now, and I have never taken the position that
either 3-ABN, or the IL Conference, had any liability for any
conduct of TS during a time when he was not employed by 3-ABN.
However, it appears that I was not clear in my statement of
my position, and that others have thought that I was saying what
I did not intend to say. I apologize for my failure to communicate
what I intended to communicate.
P.S. Who is Art? I guess Art is Mr. Joy. O.K.
