Re: RCC Sues Insurance Companies ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH SUES FOR INSURANCE During the week of December 19-23, 1994, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Milwaukee sued fourteen insurance companies because they refused to pay in nine sexual misconduct cases involving priests. The companies, which include both British and American insurers, maintain that the sexual misconduct was intentional on the part of the diocese and not insured because the church hierarchy knew of the sexual misconduct and did not try to prevent it. The archdiocese is seeking compensatory damages for settlements, legal fees, and punitive damages for alleged breach of contract. No civil case against the diocese involving priests' sexual misconduct has gone to trial in the Milwaukee area, but settlements have been reached in others.
