Richard Dukes, Jr. of Turner Padget in Charleston, SC wins summary judgment in sexual abuse claim against Catholic Diocese in which the plaintiff alleged he was sexually abused by two of his teachers in about 1970. He also claimed to have suffered from repressed memory syndrome until 2016. It was a very hard fought case, and complicated because the alleged perpetrators are believed to be dead. Richard ultimately prevailed on the common law doctrine of charitable immunity. He backed that up with substantive motions to exclude all evidence regarding repressed memory as lacking any scientific basis and that it was inadmissible under Daubert, Frye, or Rule 702, with the result that summary judgment would have been due on the statute of limitations.
