WHAT: JEFF HERMAN (www.hermanlaw.com), a nationally-recognized attorney for victims of sexual abuse, announces the filing of a lawsuit against THE LEGION OF CHRIST INCORPORATED and IMMACULATE CONCEPTION APOSTOLIC SCHOOL for the repeated sexual assault of a student by employee/teacher, Fernando Cutando (“Brother Fernando”).

According to the Complaint:

  • JOHN DOE was a student at IMMACULATE CONCEPTION APOLTOLIC SCHOOL, a boarding school governed by THE LEGION OF CHRIST INCORPORATED in 1984.
  • THE LEGION OF CHRIST INCORPORATED was founded by Marcial Maciel in the 1940s.  Father Maciel, ordained as a Roman Catholic Priest, was known to engage in molestation of children, drug use and financial improprieties.
  • From 1984-1988, JOHN DOE was sexually assaulted numerous times by Brother Fernando at multiple locations across the school campus of IMMACULATE CONCEPTION APOSTOLIC SCHOOL.
  • These incidents were reported by JOHN DOE to the priest in charge, but no actions were taken to protect JOHN DOE from further sexual assault by Brother Fernando.
  • THE LEGION OF CHRIST INCORPORATED and IMMACULATE CONCEPTION APOSTOLIC SCHOOL were negligent, reckless and breached their fiduciary duty to protect students and minors in their care.

JOHN DOE v. THE LEGION OF CHRIST INCORPORATED and IMMACULATE CONCEPTION APOSTOLIC SCHOOL was filed today in the United States District Court, District of Connecticut. The complaint is available for Download at www.HermanLaw.com)

Jeff Herman, the attorney for the victim in this case, stated: “The Complaint sets out facts that are very disturbing.  It shows a complete disregard for the safety of these children.”
