On September 3, 2019, the Independent Review Board met and carefully considered the report of investigator Steven Halter who was asked to investigate allegations of abuse against Rev. Louis S. Dolinic.

As a result of the report and the advice and unanimous recommendation of the Independent Review Board, Bishop Richard J. Malone has made the following determination:
An allegation of child sexual abuse against Rev. Louis S. Dolinic has been substantiated, and Fr. Dolinic will remain on administrative leave until the results of the diocesan investigation are reviewed by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith at the Vatican in Rome, who will make the final determination.
