Sexual abuse : Séminaire Saint-Alphonse, the Redemptorists and Father Raymond-Marie Lavoie

Robert Kugler and Pierre Boivin obtained a landmark Judgment against the religious order The Redemptorists, as well as against Séminaire Saint-Alphonse, on behalf of numerous victims of sexual abuse. The Judgment marked the first time in Québec history that a Court condemned a religious order to pay damages to a group of individuals who were sexually abused by the order’s members.

Kugler Kandestin successfully proved that as many as eleven priests sexually abused children attending the religious boarding school in a systemic manner, over a period of more than 25 years.

Following the Judgment rendered by Québec Superior Court, Kugler Kandestin settled the case and recovered $20 million for its clients.
