Lawyers to announce wrongful death suit against Archdiocese
A press conference to announce an abuse suit against the Archdiocese of Philadelphia was canceled last week, only to be rescheduled for today. But some details have changed.
A group of lawyers will announce a wrongful death suit against the diocese stemming from the suicide of a former St. Mark’s altar boy.
Known as “Ben,” the Bucks County man’s suicide was detailed in the Philadelphia Grand Jury report that charged a teacher, monsignor and three priests with abuse, and questioned the activity of 37 others.
The attorneys will file the suit with the Court of Common Pleas today.
