The sex abuse lawsuit against a doctor in New York continues after his death

A sex abuse lawsuit against a well-known New York doctor is still being heard in federal court in Manhattan – although the alleged perv died earlier this week, The Post has learned.

An attorney for the woman who filed the federal lawsuit against Kevin Cahill in 2020, using the alias Jane Doe, said she expects the appeal to go into the doctor’s estate.

“We have no intention of dropping the lawsuit,” attorney Aurore DeCarlo told the Post. “I would expect his estate representative(s) to be replaced as defendants.”

After the lawsuit was filed, Doe was replaced as plaintiff and replaced by trustee in her Chapter 7 bankruptcy proceeding, according to court records.

Raised in an Irish family in the Bronx, Cahill had a distinguished medical career that spanned decades and once treated Pope John Paul II and Ronald Reagan, according to a biography published by Irish America.

In the federal lawsuit in Manhattan, the woman alleged that Cahill romantically pursued her for years — despite a 50-year age difference — after he first treated her for a parasitic infection in 2009 at age 19.

Cahill developed an “infatuation” with the woman — sending her hundreds of messages by phone and mail, according to the suit.

She turned down his advances for years, but reached out to him again in 2018 after experiencing a medical issue, the lawsuit says.

During two medical exams in 2019, Cahill allegedly pierced her with his finger, groped her breasts and forcefully kissed her, the suit said.

Cahill had denied the allegations in the lawsuit.

“He died yesterday of natural causes at his home in Point Lookout, New York. He was a great man,” Cahill’s personal attorney said in an email Thursday.
