Claim Letter Alleging Birmingham Abuse in Gloucester | Page 1
November 9, 1990
Letter to archdiocesan attorney Wilson D. Rogers, Jr. from attorney Jeffrey E. Rossman, representing a man who claims he was molested by Rev. Joseph E. Birmingham at St. Ann's parish in Gloucester in the mid-1980s. Bishop Mulcahy met with the complainant and arranged one hour of therapy for him. "To avoid publicity for all parties concerned," Rossman is exploring a resolution "without formal litigation." This would appear to be the same complaint made to Bishop Mulcahy. See also Mulcahy's report, with Birmingham's admission of guilt. A meager settlement was reached on March 19, 1991 that included release from all claims.
