Chicago archdiocese faces 'public nuisance' charge in new type of sex-abuse lawsuit
February 05, 2015
The Archdiocese of Chicago faces a new lawsuit charging that Church officials caused a public nuisance by failing to take action against priests who abused minors.
The lawsuit brought by attorney Marc Pearlman differs from other sex-abuse cases because the plaintiff can seek to establish a pattern of behavior, rather than proving a case involving a single priest. Pearlman is working in cooperation with Jeff Anderson, who was successfully in bringing a similar claim against the Archdiocese of St. Paul-Minneapolis, Minnesota.
