Archdiocese of Philadelphia Denied Confidentiality in Priest Sex-Abuse Case

On behalf of Soloff & Zervanos, P.C. Posted in Sexual Abuse on Tuesday, January 19, 2016.

Marci Hamilton, counsel for deceased sexual abuse victim Sean McIlmail in his estate’s wrongful-death claim, believes that the ruling for transparency by Common Pleas Court Judge Mark I. Bernstein is a first in priest sex-abuse filings against the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. This ruling allows for the public disclosure of some case related information that the Archdiocese of Philadelphia had intended to keep confidential including the names of church officials involved including Rev. Robert L. Brennan.

The wrongful-death claim asserts that church officials did not act despite decades of complaints regarding the sexual misconduct of Rev. Robert L. Brennan thereby allowing over 20 boys, including Mcllmail, to be molested.
