Claims Deadline Passes For Clergy Sex Abuse Victims


MILWAUKEE — A crucial deadline passed late Wednesday afternoon for the victims of a clergy sex abuse case to file their claims.

There are more than 500 claims.

One survivor said he’s increasingly frustrated with the Catholic Church after suffering years of abuse.

“He attacked me once in the sacristy after a mass,” Catholic Church sex abuse victim Mark Salmon said.

For Salmon, the deadline for survivors to file claims is just the latest chapter in a battle he’s fought for nearly 50 years.
