On May 23, 2014 the current Archbishop of St. Louis Robert Carlson gave sworn testimony under oath as part of a civil lawsuit involving a man, Doe 1, sexually abused as a child by former priest Thomas Adamson at St. Thomas Aquinas parish in St. Paul Park, Minnesota. Archbishop Carlson worked in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis handling child sexual abuse cases from 1979-1994 as the Chancellor and Auxiliary Bishop.

Then-Bishop Carlson met with Thomas Adamson in 1980 about another incident of alleged child sexual abuse and Adamson admitted to sexually abusing the boy yet no report was made to law enforcement.

Archbishop Carlson was questioned extensively on his knowledge and involvement in child sexual abuse cases in Minnesota and gave the response of "I don't remember" 193 different times during the 2014 deposition.
