March 27, 2019 | Catholic Church Clergy Sex Abuse Litigation - Firm files amended complaint on behalf of child sex abuse victims against the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and the Holy See for condoning, facilitating, and covering up the sexual abuse of children by Catholic Church cardinals, bishops, monsignors, priests, sisters, lay leaders, educators, and members of Catholic religious orders.

February 12, 2019 | Catholic Church Clergy Sex Abuse Litigation – The Vatican refuses service of the complaint. Before serving the Vatican with the lawsuit, the complaint must first be translated into Latin. The law provides two ways to serve the translated complaint. One way is for the clerk of the district court in Washington, D.C. to simply mail the complaint directly to the Vatican—which was initially done here. Rather than accepting service, and acknowledging and dealing with plaintiffs’ claims of clergy child sex abuse, the Vatican refused to accept service. The package containing the complaint was returned to the district clerk’s office today with no explanation—other than “Rifiutato” (refused) written on the box. The Vatican will now be served with the lawsuit via the U.S. State Department.

January 16, 2019 | Catholic Church Clergy Sex Abuse Litigation - Defendant United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) was served with the sex abuse class action lawsuit in late November 2018. Rather than acknowledging and dealing with plaintiffs’ claims of clergy child sex abuse, the USCCB continued its pattern of denial by filing a motion to dismiss the lawsuit, claiming that the complaint “is extreme in its rhetoric and extravagant in its claims, but ultimately directed at the wrong parties.” Incredibly, the USCCB takes the position that nether it, nor the Vatican, is responsible in any way for clergy child sex abuse in the Catholic Church.
