Diocese of Rochester Sex Abuse Claims
On September 12, 2019, The Roman Catholic Diocese of Rochester filed for protection under chapter 11 of title 11 of the United States Code, known as the “Bankruptcy Code.”
The Catholic Church sex abuse scandal continues to make news with more and more victims coming out to claim the help they need and the compensation they deserve. The bankruptcy filing by the diocese may hurt sex abuse victims’ chances for justice and closure even though the Diocese of Rochester still intends to pay victims of sexual abuse by priests and clergy.
But the Bankruptcy Court has established August 13, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. EST as the deadline to file proofs of claim against the Diocese.
Many of these victims don’t get the full compensation they deserve.
Do not miss your opportunity for monetary compensation.
Attorney Jordan Merson has been successful in helping numerous sex abuse victims of the catholic church get the compensation they need and deserve, with child sex abuse caseswith the New York IRCP , the Syracuse IRCP , the Buffalo IRCP, and the Philadelphia IRRP.

And now Merson Law is representing church sex victims of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rochester, NY.
Information for Victim-Survivors of Abuse in the Diocese of Rochester
Fearing a “flood” of litigation from survivors, the Diocese of Rochester filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy to protect itself from claims that may “exceed its resources,” as the Diocese’s assets are estimated at $100-$500 million.
In addition to filing bankruptcy, the Diocese has set a cut-off date for all claims at August 13, 2020.
What you need to know:
Filing a claim against the Diocese of Rochester is purely voluntary; no individual is required to do so by law.
To register, please provide you name, contact information, and a summary description of the nature of the claim, including the dates and location of the abuse and name of the perpetrator. Or simply contact us.
New complaints of abuse must be reported to the local office of the District Attorney and to the Diocese of Rochester for review. This is extremely complicated and daunting.
