Alaska Priest Abuse Deadline Approaching

If you were abused by a Catholic priest, brother, or nun in the Diocese of Fairbanks Alaska, you have until December 2, 2008 to file a claim. The deadline was imposed by a bankruptcy court in Alaska as part of the Diocese of Fairbanks Chapter 11 proceedings. Thus far, sex abuse claims against the Diocese of Fairbanks have gone as far back as the 1950’s with most claims arising out of abuse that occurred in the 1960’s and 1970’s.
If you were abused by a priest, brother or nun, you must come forward before December 2nd or your right to make a claim against the Diocese of Fairbanks will be forfeited. As a priest abuse lawyer, I’ve handled abuse cases all over the country, including Puerto Rico.
