New Jersey Catholic Abuse

New Jersey's Catholic Dioceses have engaged in a decade's long cover-up of child sexual abuse by catholic clergy. As a result, in September 2018, New Jersey announced the creation of a special task force to investigate allegations of priests' child sexual abuse within New Jersey's Catholic dioceses, and Catholic officials' efforts to cover up that abuse.

There Are Deadlines To File A Claim

In May 2019, New Jersey's governor signed a law that dramatically changed the legal landscape for catholic clergy abuse victims in the state. Under New Jersey's new law, child sexual abuse survivors will have a two-year "window" to sue their abusers and the Church starting December 1, 2019.

New Jersey's Catholic Dioceses have also established sexual abuse "compensation funds" for survivors. Survivors who desire to file a compensation claim have until December 31, 2019. Claimants must register for the program by October 31, 2019.
