Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Leo Reddy:

Father Leo Reddy was ordained to the priesthood in the Diocese of Buffalo in approximately 1938.            According to media reports, in August 2019, he was accused in a lawsuit filed under the NY Child Victims Act of repeatedly sexually abusing a child who was about 12-years old in 1960. The lawsuit does not include the gender of the victim or where the alleged abuse occurred. Most of the more than 170 Child Victims Act lawsuits filed against the diocese do not include much detail about the allegations of child sex abuse lodged against priests.

Father Leo Reddy died before the lawsuit came out. The date of his death is unknown.

Horowitz Law is a law firm representing victims of sexual abuse in the Diocese of Buffalo and throughout New York. The Diocese of Buffalo filed for federal bankruptcy protection in February 2020. Anyone sexually abused by a priest or employee of the Diocese of Buffalo may be entitled to file a claim against the Diocese in these bankruptcy proceedings, but very strict filing deadlines apply. Most victims of abuse in the Diocese of Buffalo will never be able to take action against the Diocese of Buffalo if they miss this bankruptcy filing deadline, so it is important that you contact us immediately to discuss your potential case.
