Newark Archdiocese Sexual Abuse
We filed some of the first lawsuits against the Archdiocese of Newark under New Jersey’s new law for survivors of childhood sexual abuse. The new law gives all abuse survivors, regardless of their current age, a limited time to pursue a legal claim for the abuse they suffered. If you were sexually abused by a priest or someone else associated with the Archdiocese of Newark, please contact us to learn your options and to ensure your legal rights are protected. You are not alone and it was not your fault.
Priests Accused of Child Sexual Abuse: At least 80 priests and others who worked within the Archdiocese of Newark have been the subject of allegations of childhood sexual abuse, although many of the allegations were not investigated because of New Jersey outdated statute of limitations for abuse survivors.
