Archdiocese faces lawsuit

A man who says he was sexually abused by former priest Daniel McCormack recently sued the Archdiocese of Chicago. The lawsuit claims the Archdiocese created a “public nuisance” by concealing the sexual assault of children and letting abusive priests live freely in the community. The Archdiocese released thousands of documents detailing that abuse last year. But Chicago attorney Marc Pearlman says the new lawsuit would go further. We talk with Pearlman and John O’Malley, special counsel to the archbishop for misconduct issues.(Flickr/gwilmore)
