Colorado Church Sex Abuse Lawsuit

$3 Billion in Settlements

There is no question. The Catholic Church has accepted responsibility and is trying to right wrongs. In fact, dioceses in the United States have already paid out more than $3 billion in sexual abuse settlements.

However, since most abuse happened to children or teens, the laws in some states like Colorado have thus far made it impossible for adult survivors to file claims for what they endured as minors.

That is changing early 2022 for Colorado and has already changed for California.

Many more survivors have yet to come forward. Are you one of them?

“Look-Back” Window in Colorado

Colorado’s Governor Polis is expected to sign into law SB 21-088, “Child Sexual Abuse Accountability Act,” which will take effect January 1, 2022 and which states, in relevant part:

The bill creates a statutory cause of action for a victim of sexual misconduct when the victim was a minor against the actor who committed the sexual misconduct and against an organization that operates or manages a youth program if the sexual misconduct occurred while the victim was participating in a youth program.

This means that the many survivors in Colorado who have not yet been able to seek justice can now come forward and submit claims.

Let us be clear: It was not your fault.

Widespread child sexual abuse occurs because of sexual predators, and it continues because those predators are supported, be it through negligence, downright avoidance, denial or reputation-preservation, in place of protection of the child.

“ They say it’s just physical abuse but it’s more than that.
This was spiritual abuse. ”

Why now?

The Catholic Church has established funds to compensate survivors of childhood sexual abuse. However, the funds will only remain open for a short time so the window of opportunity to apply for these funds is limited. Don’t Wait!

Civil legal action is a way to regain your power.

It’s a way to not only ask for compensation for the trauma you endured but also to change the systemic patten of abuse in the Church and similar institutions. Even if it has been decades since you were hurt, you may still very well have legal option that will help you and help others.
