University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law Professor Wayne McCormack was quoted on Jan. 5 in the FOX13 article LDS Church President Thomas S. Monson subpoenaed again for deposition in sex abuse lawsuits.
“University of Utah law professor Wayne McCormack said the deposition demand is similar to lawsuits leveled against the Catholic church over sex abuse accusations, where archbishops were sought to answer questions. He said it was possible that it could go forward with limits on how much time it could take, where it would take place and what questions could be answered.
He said if the LDS Church sought to quash the subpoena, it could make several arguments.
“The motion to quash is based on the idea that his appearance in a deposition would be unduly burdensome to church processes,” he told FOX 13.”
