Sommers Schwartz Probes Allegations Against Reverend James Marron, Offering Support to Survivors


Detroit, Michigan – The law firm of Sommers Schwartz, PC is currently investigating the posthumous sexual abuse allegations surrounding Reverend James Marron, C.S.Sp., who served the Michigan community for many years and is now alleged to have been involved in acts of child sexual abuse.

Born in 1927, Marron was ordained a priest of the Holy Spirit Fathers and committed a significant part of his life to religious service, starting with a four-year mission in Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, in 1928. He returned to the United States and served in various roles throughout Michigan, including as Chaplain at Mercy Hospital in Bay City between 1968 and 1970. Marron then moved to St. Joseph Parish in Bay City, where he served from 1980 until his retirement in 1986.

However, a dark shadow was cast upon Marron’s legacy in 2019 when the Saginaw Diocese included him in a list of clergy members who had credible allegations of child sexual abuse leveled against them. These allegations came to light decades after his death in 1987.

Now, Sommers Schwartz is tenaciously pursuing the truth behind these allegations, seeking justice for any potential survivors. The firm’s dedicated clergy abuse attorneys, Lisa Esser-Weidenfeller, Matthew Curtis, and Jay Yasso, are committed to supporting survivors of sexual abuse and have a track record of successful litigation against high-profile predators.

As a part of their ongoing efforts, Sommers Schwartz has helped survivors secure millions in compensation from perpetrators such as Dr. Larry Nassar, the disgraced Michigan State University and USAG team physician, and Dr. Robert Anderson, the University of Michigan doctor who abused students, athletes, and other patients for over thirty-five years.
