Civil suit alleges church failed to protect boys
Two brothers molested by a priest filed a fraud lawsuit Wednesday, alleging the overseeing diocese knew the priest had a history of abusing children and allowed him access to the pair anyway.
A judge threw out a lawsuit against the Catholic Diocese of Superior, saying the diocese can't be forced to release information about how the church deals with sex abuse by priests.
A judge dismissed the suit seeking names of priests suspected of sex abuse. It stemmed from two killings in 2002 at a funeral home.
When it comes to sexual abuse, the religious orders have flown under the radar.
A man who was an altar boy at a Southside parish 30 years ago finally heard the Archdiocese of Indianapolis publicly acknowledge Monday that his former priest was a molester.
