By Louie Torres | Sep 30, 2016

CHICAGO — The Catholic Bishop of Chicago is suing two boys' parents, accusing the boys of starting a fire at Chicago's Notre Dame de Chicago Parish Rectory.

The Catholic Bishop of Chicago filed a complaint on Sept. 26 in Cook County Circuit Court against the parents of the boys, alleging that on March 15, 2015, the boys dropped a burning paper towel down a laundry chute, which started a fire at the bottom of the laundry chute, causing significant damage to the church property.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $50,000 plus interest, court costs and any further relief the court grants. The plaintiff is represented by Jeffrey R. Zehe and Patrick C. Hess of Nielsen, Zehe & Antas, P.C. in Chicago.
