Who are the Defendants in a Clergy Sex Abuse Case?
Generally, a victim can file a civil lawsuit against a clergy sex abuser for physical and emotional injuries.
In addition, victims may also be able to file a civil lawsuit against a third-party such as a church or other religious institution that was responsible for hiring or supervising the clergy member.
If the clergy sex abuse took place at an institution such as church, temple or another religious facility, the religious institution may be liable if it was. That is, if it failed to act with the same level of care that a reasonable person or institution would have in the same or similar circumstances. Such negligence could be established through evidence of:
- Negligent HIring
- Negligent supervision
- Hiding or concealing sex abuse of minors
- failure to conduct thorough background checks
- Failure to warn or act reasonably in response to dangers posed by the Clergy member
- Failure to conduct a proper investigation into known allegations of a clergy member’s sexual misconduct; or
- Failure to maintain proper protocols or procedures.
