It didn’t take long for the Chicago Archdiocese’s release of confidential files on pedophile priests to lead to a new lawsuit, this one accusing a former priest and a former boy scout leader of molesting boys at the same church in the 1970s.

WBBM Newsradio’s Regine Schlesinger reports, two days after thousands of pages of church documents were released, revealing decades of efforts to hide priest sex abuse cases, attorney Chris Hurley filed a lawsuit on behalf of three men, against former priest Norbert Maday.

Maday was convicted in 1994 of molesting two altar boys while on a church outing in Wisconsin. He has since been released from prison, but is a registered sex offender, living in Wisconsin, according to the National Sex Offender registry.

Hurley also represents two of those plaintiffs in a lawsuit against the Boy Scouts of America, for alleged sex abuse at the hand of convicted former scout leader Thomas Hacker in the 1970s.

“What’s ironic here is Father Maday was responsible for supervising the scout master, and both he and the scout master were molesting children. Whether they were doing it in concert with one another, I’m not sure we’ll ever know,” he said. “They were friends at the time, and … Father Maday has visited Thomas Hacker in prison. Presumably, they remain friends.”

Hurley said, as Maday was the church liaison overseeing scout leaders at St. Louis de Montfort, the Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago had a “fox guarding the hen house.”
