More allegations of abuse


According to the Associated Press, a man is suing a former Anchorage Catholic priest he says molested him years ago.

The plaintiff is identified only as Joseph Doe in the lawsuit filed in Anchorage Tuesday against the Reverend Francis Murphy and church leaders in Anchorage and Boston, where Murphy was ordained.

The plaintiff is seeking more than 100-thousand dollars in the lawsuit. The man's attorneys say the plaintiff no longer lives in Anchorage and doesn't want to disclose his current whereabouts.
