About New Jersey’s Catholic Diocese Compensation Fund

On November 19, 2018, the Archbishop of Newark announced the Archdiocese of Newark and the Dioceses of Camden, Trenton, Paterson and Metuchen will establish a victim compensation program. This program will provide compensation to victims of child sexual abuse by clergy and employees of the dioceses in New Jersey whose legal claims are barred by New Jersey's statute of limitations. New Jersey’s dioceses will also release the names of all credibly accused clergy in 2019.

What to Expect

The Catholic dioceses of New Jersey have set up a claim Programs that will begin considering claims in the summer of 2019 and will do so until the end of 2019. The Programs will have various filing deadlines and eligibility requirements. The Program administrators will be the same people that our firm dealt with in the Penn State cases, the New York clergy abuse cases, and the Pennsylvania clergy abuse cases. They will consider evidence, oral testimony, and arguments before making a determination of the value of each individual case. The administrators do not negotiate from this value, so it is important to present the best case possible to maximize the value of your case.

Know All Your Options

You have other options if you do not want to enroll in the victim compensation program. The New Jersey legislature recently passed a law that allows previously time barred victims of childhood sexual abuse to bring civil claims during a two year “window.” This limited window will open on December 1, 2019 and will be closed two years later. Survivors are encouraged to come forward as soon as possible to consider their options because once the window closes so will their opportunity for justice.
