John Doe 1K and John Doe 2K v. Roman Catholic Diocese of Charlotte, NC, 775 S.E.2d 918 (N.C. Ct. App. 2015). McGuireWoods obtained a significant victory for a Roman Catholic diocese. Several plaintiffs alleging sexual abuse by priests in the 1970s and 1980s filed suits against the Diocese. The lawsuits were designed to advance novel rules for tolling of statutes of limitation. In August 2015, the North Carolina Court of Appeals, in its first decision addressing the application of statutes of limitations in cases alleging decades-old abuse by clergy, ruled in favor of the Diocese. The Court of Appeals declined to adopt the tolling theories urged by the plaintiffs, all of whom admitted that they had always known of the alleged abuse but had made no effort to pursue potential claims for decades.
