Who is Father Paschal Morlino?

Father Paschal Morlino, a pastor with the Archdioceses of Baltimore for decades, removed from his duties after revelations that he paid $200,000 to an accuser of sexual abuse emerge. 

Father Paschal Morlino worked for 30 years at St. Benedict Church in Baltimore. Two victims made accusations of rape. Both victims are deceased. Morlino claims he is innocent and stated he just wanted to silence the victim he paid. He is now with Saint Vincent Archabbey in Latrobe, Pennsylvania.

After 30 years of active ministry and two allegations, the reality that there are more is almost certain. You are not alone if you have had contact with Father Paschal Morlino or your child.

How Can A Civil Lawsuit Help Victims Seek Justice For The Trauma They May Have Experienced From Father Paschal Morlino?

There are many misunderstandings about why a survivor of sexual abuse would choose to file a civil lawsuit.  Child sexual abuse takes away so much from the survivors and families impacted. Our society still struggles to find ways to repair the harm done by individual perpetrators and institutions that have covered up child sexual abuse.  Outdated statutes of limitations across our country leave far too many survivors denied access to our criminal or civil justice courts.

Filing a civil case can be an essential step for survivors and their families in their journey to slowly rebuild their lives and create pathways to healing.  Motivation for filing a civil suit is often questioned and unfairly stereotyped as being “all about money. Filing a civil lawsuit can cast survivors as “money hungry” and is weaponized to shame and blame them even more. This couldn’t be further from the truth for survivors of child sexual abuse. The civil justice system offers victims more than just monetary benefits.  It gives survivors access to justice, validation, exposure, confrontation, and ultimately some resolution. The resolution allows survivors of sexual abuse to understand and process what happened and create a new path forward without confusion, questions, and fear.
