It was reported today that the Archdiocese of Hartford settled a child rape case for close to a million bucks. The attorney who represented the plaintiff who was repeatedly raped by Reverend Ed as a teenager stated the following: “We settled this matter without a single deposition, which saved our client the extreme emotional distress and burden that would have come with being deposed and reliving his painful experiences, we are not celebrating this outcome because when you represent a victim of childhood sexual abuse, there are no true victories, by bringing this case the plaintiff wanted to show other abuse survivors that they do not have to keep their own victimizations secret.”
According to the lawsuit, Rev Ed caused the teenage boy to suffer “panic attacks, extreme anxiety, depression, nightmares, loss of his religious faith, difficulty with human relationships and intimacy, and poor school performance.” Sounds a lot like the Greer case.
The Plaintiff in the Rev Ed case was able to keep his name out of public view. The case was filed under the name “John Doe.” The plaintiff in the Greer case chose not to hide his name. Or he may have been unable to hide his name. Hopefully plaintiff Mirlis will give others the courage to come forward and report Greer’s criminal activity. A crime spree that went on for decades and continues to this day, with Greer paying teenage boys to sleep over at the compound every weekend.
The parties involved in the Rev. Ed lawsuit settled without subjecting the victim to the extreme emotional distress at having to relive his experiences with Rev Ed during a deposition. Unlike the Greer case. Greer is subjecting his victims to the overly aggressive tactics of his attorney, with threats and intimidation. Greer’s attorney arranged to have a marshal show up at the deposition of rape victim Avi Hack and serve him with an extortion lawsuit. But he was bluffing. The attorney never ended up filing the lawsuit. The child rape case is just a one big sick game for Greer and his attorney.
In other news, the dean of the Yale Law School has decided to resign. Over the summer I posted about how child rapist Greer had arranged to have his annual fundraiser at the Yale Law School. After my posting, the annual fundraiser was moved to the Betts Mansion, a haunted house that was a location proposed to film the Addams Family movie. And now the dean of the Yale Law School, who may have had a role in allowing a child rapist conduct a fundraiser at the Yale law school, has called it quits. Is this just a coincidence?
