About this title:

Synopsis: The sexual abuse of children and teens by rogue priests in the U.S. Catholic Church is a heinous crime, and those who pray for a religious community as its ministers, priests and rabbis should never tolerate those who prey on that community. The legal disputes of recent years have produced many scandalous headlines and fuelled public discussion about the sexual abuse crisis within the clergy, a crisis that has cost the U.S. Catholic Church over $3 billion.

In The Clergy Sex Abuse Crisis and the Legal Responses, two eminent experts, James O'Reilly and Margaret Chalmers, draw on the lessons of recent years to discern the interplay between civil damages law and global church-based canon law. In some countries civil and canon law, although autonomous systems of law, both form part of the church's legal duties. In the United States, freedom of religion issues have complicated how the state adjudicates both cases of abuse and who can be held responsible for clerical oversight. This book examines questions of civil and criminal liability, issues of respondeat superior and oversight, issues with statutes of limitations and dealing with allegations that occurred decades ago, and how the Church's internal judicial processes interact or clash with the civil pursuit of these cases.

About the Author:
James T. O'Reilly is a Professor at the University of Cincinnati College of Law. He was President of the Archdiocesan Pastoral Council under Archbishop (later Cardinal) Joseph Bernardin. He has served as a state police officer, taught criminal law and published several books on criminal investigatory procedure. His legal article on church accountability was accepted by state appeals courts in several states. He is co-author of Punishing Corporate Crime: Legal Penalties for Criminal and Regulatory Violations (Oxford University Press, 2009).

Margaret S. P. Chalmers has worked for many years in canon law, and as a civil attorney. She worked for the Diocese of Birmingham in Alabama for ten years, and has been an adjunct professor in the Honors College at the University of Alabama. She is currently the Chancellor of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter, as well as being in canonical practice with Canon Law Professionals. She is a member of the Canon Law Society of America as well as a member of the Alabama State Bar. Her articles have been published in both Studia Canonica and CLSA Proceedings.
