“A renowned Boston attorney is suing the Buffalo Diocese for $300 million on behalf of a Niagara County woman who said she was abused by a Franciscan priest in the 1970s and 1980s.”

Not 2002 “The diocese, the high school and the Conventual Franciscan order “had a duty not to aid a pedophile such a Father Andrzejczuk” and also also had the responsibility as mandated reporters to report the abuse, but did not, Garabedian claims.

Since then, Holler-Kennedy has suffered with alcohol problems, panic attacks, flashbacks, “feeling that her innocence was stolen, and feeling that her life was ruined,” the lawsuit states.

The suit seeks $50 million in compensatory damages and $250 million in punitive damages. Holler-Kennedy first sought compensation through the diocese’s settlement program but was denied because she did not meet a deadline, Garabedian said.”
