COURT CONFIRMS CHURCH LEGALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR ABUSIVE PRIESTS

Rightside Legal has broken new legal ground in the first ever judgment against the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne.

The Archdiocese has been ordered to pay $1.9 million to a Rightside client, who was assaulted as a 11 year old by his priest. The Court rejected the Church’s arguments that it was not responsible for what happened to our client, and ordered that he be paid compensation.
