Doe v. Second Baptist Church of Marshall, Texas

Horrible stories of sexual abuse and misconduct by church clergy have shocked the American conscience during the last few years. Sadly, these news stories involve tragic abuse to children by the very persons we turn to in our times of need. Nix, Patterson, & Roach has been a leader in prosecuting sexual abuse cases since long before these cases covered the headlines. In the early 1990’s, when several children from an East Texas church reported that they had been sexually abused by a member of the church, they came to Nix, Patterson, & Roach for help. We filed suit on their behalf and won a verdict and judgment for them in the amount of $7,500,000.00.
