Todd and Troy Merryfield, Clients of Attorney John Peterson, Successful in Lawsuit Against the Roman Catholic Diocese of Green Bay

Todd and Troy Merryfield, clients of attorney John Peterson, were recently successful in their civil lawsuit against the Roman Catholic Diocese of Green Bay. According to an article in the Post Crescent:

When an Outagamie County jury decided the Roman Catholic Diocese of Green Bay covered up a priest's history of child molestation, it sent a message to the rest of Wisconsin, an advocate for sexual abuse victims said. The outcome of Todd and Troy Merryfields' civil lawsuit against the diocese Monday empowers victims across the state to come forward, said Peter Isely, the Midwest director for Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests. For others who have reported sexual abuse by priests, this "should increase the pressure to bring these cases to a just resolution."

The Post Crescent article links to other articles and developments in the case, which was filed in 2008 and relates to events dating back to the 1970s.
