Archdiocese of Newark

The Archdiocese of Newark has faced significant legal challenges in recent years due to allegations of childhood sexual abuse perpetrated by clergy members. Since the passage of the 2019 Child Victims Act, over 400 lawsuits have been filed against the Archdiocese by victims seeking justice and accountability.

To address these lawsuits, the cases have been consolidated since 2020 for the purpose of resolving legal issues and exchanging discovery and information. They are currently pending in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Essex County. The litigation process has involved the exchange of thousands of pages of discovery, highlighting the complex nature of these legal proceedings.

Despite progress in the litigation, several complex legal issues remain outstanding. The current discovery end date for the Essex County cases is November 18, 2024. This indicates that the legal process is ongoing, and efforts are being made to ensure that victims of abuse receive the justice and compensation they deserve.
