NY, NJ attorneys general to investigate Catholic dioceses' handling of abuse

"The New York attorney general issued subpoenas against the state's Roman Catholic dioceses on Thursday as New Jersey announced a task force to investigate allegations of sexual abuse of minors by the clergy."

'"We look forward to receiving the subpoena and working with the attorney general," Zwilling said. '

'"I am extremely honored that the Attorney General would ask me to take on such an extraordinarily important investigation," Laurino said in a statement. '

'New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, meanwhile, established a task force to probe cases of sexual abuse and any attempts by the church to cover them up. '

'New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood subpoenaed the eight state dioceses as part of a civil investigation into how the church reviewed allegations of sexual abuse, a source familiar with the investigation said Thursday. '
