Clohessy said several dioceses have sought to recover money from their insurance companies in recent years, only to be rebuffed with the argument that the abuse was preventable and therefore the church's own fault."The more that cover-ups become uncovered, the clearer it is to insurance companies that the vast majority of this horror could have been prevented," Clohessy said.

Guglielmone, is suing Insurance Company of North America, Ace American Insurance Company and other Ace affiliates, as well as Century Indemnity Company, seeking a jury trial."The diocese had insurance with various companies up to 1979, then another company since 1979," said A. "So we're trying to collect under the terms of the insurance policies that were in effect at the time the allegation of abuse occurred."At issue are legal costs for defending the diocese in the class-action suit and the resulting settlement awards, which already have been paid.

"It's the right thing to do to protect potential future victims and be honest to the faithful."The earliest recorded abuse occurred in 1951, according to the current lawsuit; the latest happened in 1979-80, the last year of insurance coverage from the companies named in the case. The diocese alleges the companies failed to pay up on their policies, leaving the diocese on the hook to pay out millions.
