Wrongful Death Claim Filed against Philadelphia Archdiocese

A new wrongful death claim against the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and Archbishop Cardinal Justin Rigali was filed Wednesday on behalf of the family of Daniel Neill, a 36-year-old former St. Mark Parish altar boy who committed suicide in 2009 after reporting he had been sexually abused by a priest.

Neill’s suicide and allegations of sexual abuse were included in a recent Philadelphiagrand jury report released in February. http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2011/04/07/wrongful-death-claim-filed-against-philadelphia-archdiocese/?iref=allsearch
