Allegations of child sex abuse committed by Roman Catholic Church cardinals, bishops, monsignors, priests, sisters, educators, and members of Catholic religious orders have been rampant in the United States since at least 1940. The abused children include boys and girls, some as young as 3 years old, but usually between 11 and 14 years old.
“The church has shown that it is unable to reform itself. The threat of legal action is the only way to force the church to fully confront the sexual abuse scandal and do the right thing.”
Rather than safeguarding and protecting children, Catholic Church leaders, including the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and the Vatican itself, protected the abusers, denied the abuse occurred, took extraordinary measures to conceal abusive priests’ wrongful conduct, failed and refused to report abusive clergy to the authorities as required by law, and—incredibly—even promoted them.
Our attorney team recently filed the first comprehensive national racketeering class action lawsuit against the USCCB and the Vatican to remedy the situation once and for all. Please click here to read it.
We also help clergy sex abuse victims recover compensation from special funds established in New York, Pennsylvania, and other states at a reduced fee percentage. In fact, we believe we charge the lowest contingent attorneys’ fee percentage in the marketplace.
“What we see here is the Vatican again trying to suppress even modest progress by the U.S. bishops. We’re seeing where the problem lies, which is with the Vatican.”
