Justin Levinson is representing a number of victims who were abused by paedophile Priest Sam Penney. The claims are being brought against the estates of Archbishops George Dwyer and Maurice Couve de Murville
Justin is claiming that the Archbishops were “in a position to remove Father Penney from his post” and they failed to do so.
“The sexual abuse and assaults perpetrated by Father Penney were committed in the course of, or were closely connected with, Father Penney’s employment and duties” and so “The Archbishops were, and remain, vicariously liable for the sexual abuse and assaults of Father Penney and for the injury and damage which the claimant suffered as a result of Father Penney’s acts.”
One of the trials is due to take place in June this year.
