“Did you know these men?”

The question appeared in an ad in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser last Sunday that
showed old black-and-white photographs of three Roman Catholic priests linked to
child sexual abuse.

Mark Gallagher, a Kailua attorney, and Jeff Anderson, a St. Paul, Minn.,
attorney, are searching for possible victims of child sexual abuse before a
unique two-year window to file civil claims for decades-old misconduct closes on
April 24.
