Fr. Michael Kurz
Diocese: Diocese of Pueblo CO
Working in the Rockford diocese as Judicial Vicar of Diocesan Tribunal when accused in a 5/08 lawsuit filed in Pueblo, CO. Suit claims abuse occurred at Christ the King Church in Pueblo, beginning in 1976 when plaintiff was in his early teens. Rockford said the allegations were unfounded and false since Kurz was not assigned to the parish when abuse is alleged and wasn’t yet ordained during another time when abuse was alleged. Settled.
Our Database of Publicly Accused does not state or imply that individuals facing allegations are guilty of a crime or liable for civil claims. The reports contained in the database are merely allegations. The U.S. legal system presumes that a person accused of or charged with a crime is innocent until proven guilty. Similarly, individuals who may be defendants in civil actions are presumed not to be liable for such claims unless a plaintiff proves otherwise. Admissions of guilt or liability are not typically a part of civil or private settlements. For more information, see our posting policy.
