California Clergy Abuse Lawsuits
Accused California Priests
California Law Gives Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse a Limited Window to File Lawsuits and Seek Justice – Window Closes on December 31, 2022
California enacted Assembly Bill 218, which opened a limited “look-back window” on January 1, 2020, in which childhood sexual abuse survivors can pursue claims that had been previously time barred. Due to this newly enacted law, survivors of clergy abuse have the opportunity to seek justice for the abuse they suffered. This window closes soon on December 31, 2022.
Survivors of clergy abuse will not be silenced. Our attorneys are listening. If you would like to learn how we use the civil justice system to hold clergy and churches accountable for their abuses, please contact us for a free consultation today before the window closes.
Publicly Accused California Priests
The following information is from the Database of Publicly Accused Priests. They do not state or imply that individuals facing allegations are guilty of a crime or liable for civil claims. The reports contained in the database are merely allegations. The U.S. legal system presumes that a person accused of or charged with a crime is innocent until proven guilty. Similarly, individuals who may be defendants in civil actions are presumed not to be liable for such claims unless a plaintiff proves otherwise. Admissions of guilt or liability are not typically a part of civil or private settlements.
