Archdiocese withholds comment on priest lawsuit

September 29, 2010 (CHICAGO) The suit accuses the archdiocese and Cardinal Francis George of ignoring allegations lodged against McCormack for years, leaving children vulnerable.

This most recent suit claims the victim was abused over a period of roughly four years, starting in the 2002-'03 school year.

McCormack previously pleaded guilty to charges he fondled five boys. He was sentenced to a five-year prison term in connection with the criminal case.
