Church Wants More Abuse Lawsuits In Federal Court


(AP) DENVER Two lawsuits accusing the Archdiocese of Denver of doing nothing regarding a priest who had been accused of abusing children should be moved to federal court because of constitutional questions, attorneys for the church argued Monday.

At least 10 men have filed lawsuits in Denver District Court alleging they were abused as boys by Harold Robert White starting in the 1960s. The lawsuits name only the archdiocese as the defendant.
