John Doe v. Archdiocese of Milwaukee

The Wisconsin Court of Appeals today issued this decision affirming the dismissal of several lawsuits. The Circuit Court had dismissed them on the ground that they were filed after the statute of limitations had run. The plaintiffs alleged they had been sexually abused by Father Siegfried Widera in the 1970s. The courts rejected the plaintiffs' argument that they should not be deemed to have discovered their injury until much later, which would make their lawsuits timely.
