SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) - A lawsuit says a former alter boy at a Sarasota church was molested 20 years ago by a Catholic priest.

The lawsuit, filed yesterday, is against 65-year-old George Brennan and the Diocese of Venice.

It says the alleged abuse took place when the man was 11. The lawsuit claims it occurred for more than a year while Brennan was a seminarian at the Incarnation Catholic Church.
