Three more lawsuits are being filed against the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rochester on behalf of child sex abuse victims on Thursday.
The lawsuits are being filed under the Child Victims Act, which was signed into law earlier this year. The law allows victims to file lawsuits within a one-year window, regardless of when the alleged abuse took place.
Attorney Dan Ellis will discuss the lawsuits and the allegations against the institution at a news conference Thursday afternoon.
Nearly 50 cases have been filed in Monroe County alone since the one-year time period began on August 14.
