Catholic Dioceses in New York Sexual Abuse Lawsuit Investigation

Sauder Schelkopf is investigating potential lawsuits on behalf of victims who were sexually assaulted by living or deceased clergy in the state of New York. The New York Attorney General has subpoenaed Roman Catholic dioceses in New York to investigate sexual abuse.  New York’s investigation into clergy abuse follows Pennsylvania scathing grand jury report that identified more than 300 abusive priests and more than 1,000 child victims over seven decades. Numerous priests named in the Pennsylvania grand jury report served in New York at one time.

Experience Matters

Sauder Schelkopf has a nationally recognized sexual assault practice.  We currently represent victims of clergy sexual abuse in the Pennsylvania dioceses.  We have a class action lawsuit pending on behalf of former males who were sexually abused by Dr. Richard Strauss while they were students and student-athletes at Ohio State University (“OSU”).  Read about our OSU case here.   We also represent females who were patients of Dr. George Tyndalla gynecologist at the University of Southern California accused of sexually assaulting students since the 1990s.   Read about our USC case here.
