Posted on: July 10, 2019 Catholic Church Sexual Abuse
The Catholic Church sexual abuse epidemic continues as the names of more than 100 clerics accused of abuse in the Phoenix Diocese were recently released to the public. According to the report filed, more than 50 of the names released have already passed away and another 25 priests’ whereabouts are unknown.
And as nation litigation against sexual abusers continues to evolve, legislation was recently passed in Arizona to extend the age limit for victims to bring forward claims of sexual abuse. The new Arizona law gives sexual abuse victims until their 30th birthday to sue. Also, victims that miss their 30th birthday cutoff to file a claim are given a one-time window until 2020 to file.
