The Knucklehead of the Day award
It took me a while to name today's winner, but here we go.
Today's winner is Miami Attorney Adam Horowitz. He is representing a woman(The name in the suit is Jane Doe) who is suing the Archdiocese of Orlando. A priest in their employment raped this woman and Mr. Horowitz has filed suit.
What a greedy piece of horse tahe Mr. Horwoitz is. The priest, Fr. Wladyslaw Gorak broke into the woman's home and assaulted her, so how is the diocese responsible? Charges of stalking were filed in New Jersey but dropped. There's a thing called innocent till proven guilty but Horowitz apparently forgot that. Its about money and greed, and Mr. Horowitz and attorneys like him are leeches who have to be put in their place. For if they aren't stopped, no one is safe.
For pursuing greed, Adam Horowitz is today's Knucklehead of the day.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- A woman has sued the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Newark and the Diocese of Orlando for $5 million, alleging that a priest who worked at the two parishes sexually assaulted her.
The woman, identified in court papers as "Jane Doe," claims the Rev. Wladyslaw Gorak broke into her house in Lakeland in October 2004 and overpowered her, according to the lawsuit filed Thursday in Orlando. She said she told religious officials that Gorak was harassing and stalking her, but they allegedly ignored her pleas for help.
Gorak was arrested last year and charged with burglary with an assault, false imprisonment, aggravated stalking and battery.
The woman's attorney, Adam Horowitz of Miami, said the Newark Archdiocese should have known and warned others that Gorak, 49, was a potential problem when it let him work in Florida in 2004. Police reports obtained by Horowitz show that in 2001 a female parishioner in New Jersey also accused Gorak of stalking, though reports do not show charges filed.
But James Goodness, a spokesman for the Newark archdiocese, and Carol Brinati, a spokeswoman for the Orlando diocese, both said the dioceses knew of no previous complaints about Gorak. Brinati said the diocese removed Gorak when allegations of wrongdoing surfaced.
Jane Doe first met Gorak in New Jersey, where he became a spiritual adviser to her and her husband, the suit states. The couple moved to Florida shortly after Gorak was transferred to Resurrection Church in Lakeland in 2004.
Soon after, Gorak pestered the woman, frequently showing up for long, unannounced visits, the suit alleges. She complained to the Lakeland pastor, who told her he would take action, the suit claims.
But on Oct. 12, 2004, Gorak kicked in the door of her house and sexually assaulted her, the lawsuit claims.
