Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio is denying a sexual abuse allegation made by a man who filed a lawsuit against the Archdiocese of Newark and the bishop. The man claims Bishop DiMarzio, who was then a priest in New Jersey, abused him when he was a child.
Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio is strongly denying a second allegation by attorney Mitchell Garabedian that he abused a minor during his early ministry as a priest and says he is considering filing a defamation lawsuit against Garabedian.
A priest in the Archdiocese of Boston will return to ministry after attorney Mitchell Garabedian withdrew a lawsuit against him that claimed he sexually abused a minor 30 years ago after an independent review found the allegation to be unsubstantiated.
Despite claims that he intended to file a lawsuit with an allegation of child sex abuse against Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio in December, attorney Mitchell Garabedian says he is still preparing his case.
Mitchell Garabedian has become a well-known lawyer because of the high-profile lawsuits he has filed against the Catholic Church for clergy sex abuse.
