The Null Device

The World's Oldest Multinational Corporation: The Catholic Church has been fighting back against accusations of sexual abuse by priests, and has been fighting with dirty tactics, including countersuing victims or their parents, intimidating witnesses and various high-pressure tactics more suited to tobacco companies.
The most egregious example of the Church's legal aggression involved an Albuquerque, New Mexico, man named Timothy Martinez. In 1991, he and 12 other men sued the Archdiocese of Santa Fe charging that they had been molested as children by convicted pedophile Jason Sigler, who left the priesthood in 1982. Despite the former priest's criminal conviction, Martinez faced a fierce fight. Detectives combed through his past; they tracked down old roommates and girlfriends. Among their questions: Did Martinez ever engage in homosexual acts? Did he like it?
