Chicago archdiocese hit with another lawsuit involving ex-priest McCormack

August 06, 2010

The Chicago archdiocese is facing a new lawsuit brought by a young man who says that he was molested by the ex-priest Daniel McCormack. The lawsuit claims that the archdiocese was negligent in allowing McCormack to continue ministry despite earlier complaints of sexual abuse. McCormack, a priest who is now serving a 5-year term for child molestation, remained active in parish ministry until 2006, although under the terms of the Dallas Charter he should have been suspended in 2002 because of multiple earlier complaints. He has subsequently been laicized.
