Buffalo Diocese faces second federal lawsuit over former priest
Also this week, the Buffalo Diocese was served with formal legal discovery requests for documents by two law firms working in partnership on lawsuits filed under the Child Victims Act.
The Marsh Law Firm and Pfau Cochran Vertetis Amala asked for records on 10 priests accused of abuse in an Aug. 14 lawsuit, including any documents on them that were sent or received by the Vatican or any law enforcement agency, any records on the men in the diocese’s “secret archives,” and any therapy, medical and counseling records “relating to sexual deviancy treatment.”
The diocese has 20 days to respond to the records request or object to the court.Find more information online here.
