Dismissal of lawsuit against two Catholic dioceses upheld

Marie Rohde reports in today's Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on the Wisconsin Supreme Court's decision in Hornback v. Archdiocese of Milwaukee. Allegations against our Archdioces included,
Claims of sexual abuse were brought to the attention of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee long before Kazmarek went to Kentucky. Church officials promised two dozen of the victims’ parents “that [Gary] Kazmarek would be sent to a treatment center and that he would never have contact with children again,” according to the complaint, and “pleaded with parents to not report Kazmarek’s crimes to the police.” Instead, he was allowed to leave Milwaukee quietly and work in other schools.

Even if not the basis for a lawsuit, our Archdiocese is "paying damages" in other ways when its people are convinced of the truth of these allegations.
