Judge orders Vatican to show files in abuse case

A federal judge in Oregon ruled Thursday that the Vatican must respond to certain requests for information from a man who says he was molested by a priest in the 1960s. The man known in court documents as John V. Doe filed suit eight years ago. He seeks to hold the Vatican liable for the abuse he said he suffered from the Rev. Andrew Ronan, who died in 1992.

Attorney: Lawsuit against Vatican will be long and hard battle

The Vatican has been served with court papers related to allegations in a sexual abuse case.
