Hollander Law Office Files Suit Against the Archdiocese of Chicago for Priest Sexual Abuse

The Hollander Law Offices recently filed a lawsuit against the Archdiocese of Chicago in the Circuit Court of Cook County for negligently supervising one of its priests, the former Father Daniel McCormack, regarding administering his priestly duties.  According to the allegations of the lawsuit, McCormack sexually abused two minor boys in the fall of 2004.  McCormack was criminally charged and pled guilty in August, 2005 regarding sexual abuse allegations of another minor child.  McCormack is currently incarcerated.  The Archdiocese was previously sued for other McCormack related incidents of sexual molestation and has settled a number of those claims.  This lawsuit is in its early stages.  The case is consolidated with similar cases alleging sexual abuse against the Archdiocese for discovery purposes.  We anticipate that the case will take approximately two years to resolve.
