The Wilbanks Child Endangerment and Sexual Exploitation Clinic has filed an amicus brief in the case Philip Doe v. Saint Joseph's Catholic Church, et al., urging the Georgia Supreme Court to grant certiorari in the case and overturn a decision by the state Court of Appeals. The brief argues that the lower court's decision is inconsistent with Georgia law and that it could deny justice for survivors of child sexual abuse.

The brief was authored by Wilbanks CEASE Clinic Post-Graduate Fellow Melina D. Lewis and Director Emma M. Hetherington.
