Back in April, a state appeals court ruled that the insurance company Chubb may move forward with its lawsuit against the Archdiocese of New York.

Chubb is arguing its policies shouldn’t cover claims of child sexual abuse that may have been enabled and covered up by church officials.

However, advocates of child victims are pushing back and accusing Chubb and other insurers of denying and delaying payment to survivors to protect their own profits.

They are now calling on lawmakers and the State Attorney General’s office to intervene and investigate those insurance companies.

Stephen Jimenez, an advocate and survivor of childhood sexual abuse who helped pass the Child Victims Act five years ago, joined NY1 political anchor Errol Louis on “Inside City Hall” Thursday to discuss more.

In response, a Chubb spokesperson wrote, in part, “The Archdiocese has the financial resources to pay compensation to victims right now, and it should do so.  The Archdiocese knows that insurance policies cover damages from accidents. You can’t buy insurance for intended acts the Archdiocese of New York has admitted: concealing, tolerating and abetting child molestation, which continued for decades because of the Archdiocese’s cover-up and its unconscionable failure to stop the abuse when it had the knowledge and opportunity to do so.”
