Clergy Sexual Abuse in the Archdiocese of New York

On Thursday, October 6, 2016, Cardinal Timothy Dolan announced a plan to compensate survivors of clergy sexual abuse called the Independent Reconciliation and Compensation Program (“IRCP”). This program is only available to survivors of sexual abuse in the Archdiocese of New York. Additionally, the program is limited to only those individuals who previously reported sexual abuse to the Archdiocese of New York. The IRCP also excludes survivors of sexual abuse who were abused by a member of a religious order or clergy who worked in the Archdiocese of New York, but were not Archdiocesan priests.

Furthermore, if you received a settlement in the past for the sexual abuse you suffered as a child, you are not eligible to participate in the IRCP. Cardinal Dolan set an arbitrary deadline of January 31, 2017, to participate in the program. Claims will be evaluated by Kenneth Feinberg and Camille Biros who will determine eligibility to participate in the program and a survivor’s overall compensation for the sexual abuse they suffered.

UPDATE: PHASE II – MORE SURVIVORS ELIGIBLE FOR COMPENSATION

Now that the Phase I, January 31, 2017, deadline has passed, the Archdiocese of New York recently announced Phase II of the IRCP. Phase II is for individuals who have not previously contacted the Archdiocese regarding sexual abuse allegations by clergy. All submissions will be forwarded to the office of the District Attorney for review and the matter will be investigated and examined by the Archdiocese Lay Review Board.

The deadline for submissions for Phase II is July 31, 2017.

If a sexual abuse survivor enters into an agreement with the Archdiocese of New York and decides to proceed with compensation, the survivor waives all future rights to litigate against the Archdiocese of New York.

Before making such an important decision concerning such a serious and sensitive matter, we encourage all survivors of clergy sexual abuse to consult with legal counsel before proceeding with a claim against the Archdiocese of New York.

Clergy Sexual Abuse in the Diocese of Brooklyn

On June 21, 2017, the Diocese of Brooklyn announced a plan to compensate survivors of clergy sexual abuse. This program is nearly identical to the Independent Reconciliation and Compensation Program (IRCP) offered by the Archdiocese of New York. The Diocese of Brooklyn’s IRCP is only available to survivors of sexual abuse in the Diocese of Brooklyn. Phase I of the compensation program is only available to those individuals who previously reported sexual abuse to the Diocese of Brooklyn. The IRCP excludes sexual abuse survivors who were abused by a member of a religious order or clergy who worked in the Diocese of Brooklyn, but were not Diocesan priests.

The deadline for submissions for Phase I is September 30, 2017.

Before making such an important decision concerning such a serious and sensitive matter, we encourage all survivors of clergy sexual abuse to consult with legal counsel before proceeding with a claim against the Diocese of Brooklyn.

If a sexual abuse survivor enters into an agreement with the Diocese of Brooklyn and decides to proceed with compensation, the survivor waives all future rights to litigate against the Diocese of Brooklyn.

New York Childs Victim Act

Sexual abuse survivors in the Archdiocese of New York are fighting to pass the New York Child Victims Act (A1771-S6367). Different versions of the Child Victims Act will extend or eliminate the statute of limitations for sexual abuse and allow survivors to obtain the help, healing and justice they deserve. The Child Victims Act can also help hold institutions accountable for covering up for the abusers. New York legislators may vote on the Child Victims Act after the legislative session resumes in 2017.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan introduced a compensation program in the Archdiocese of New York for sexual abuse survivors abused by priests in the Archdiocese. The Archdiocese’s plan only includes survivors in the Archdiocese who were abused by Archdiocesan priests, excluding those abused by religious order priests, other religious, and lay persons. We encourage clergy sexual abuse survivors to consult with legal counsel before participating in this program with the Archdiocese of New York.
