In response to last week’s article, “26 Perlitz victims file lawsuits against Fairfield“:

Doug Perlitz has been sentenced for his inhumane crime. To attempt to hold Fairfield University responsible for the amount of hundreds of millions of dollars seems to be a misplaced attempt for lawyers to capitalize on the situation. Should they be successful, the unfortunate result would be a lack of funding from charitable organizations such as Fairfield University, because the risk is too high. Charitable sources, who distribute money to help those less fortunate, being forced to say “no” to well meaning groups and individuals looking for support would be a most unfortunate outcome – and a limit on the application of the Jesuit motto “men for others.”
