$880,000 Settlement – Clergy Abuse
A significant settlement was secured on behalf of our clients, two former altar boys on the Southside of Chicago, who were sexually abused by Father Norbert Mayday, a Catholic Clergyman who had been imprisoned and moved around due to previous offences. The boys were 10-13 years old, and the offense happened 35 years ago at St. Bede the Venerable Elementary School. Maday is no longer living, but in light of recent favorable case law permitting Illinois childhood sexual abuse victims to pursue justice in the courts, these victims were able to achieve some measure of justice for what happened to them.
