Sex abuse, physical abuse, clergy abuse, minister abuse and priest abuse are serious problems in today’s world, even in the state of Delaware. Clergy abuse and sex abuse can ruin lives, and too many sex abuse victims and clergy abuse victims keep quiet, missing their chance to put their lives back together and to get the justice they deserve. The Delaware Statute of Limitations must be reviewed before moving forward because you have only so much time to file a case if you are a victim of clergy abuse, priest abuse, or child sexual abuse. Many civil cases have won victims millions of dollars in the state of Delaware.


Recently, a Delaware court issued $30 million in damages to a clergy abuse victim who alleged that he was sexually abused over a hundred times by a priest. Thus far, this was the biggest clergy abuse award given to one single priest abuse victim. Even better, the parish, St. Elizabeth’s in Wilmington, where the sexual abuse took place, was forced to pay must pay three million dollars. Although it is rare that parishes are forced to pay in clergy abuse cases, it sure feels like justice was served in Delaware.
