Second civil lawsuit filed in abuse allegations


CHICAGO A second civil lawsuit has been filed in connection with allegations of sexual abuse levied against a Roman Catholic priest in Chicago.

The lawsuit names the Reverend Daniel McCormack, the Archdiocese of Chicago and Our Lady of the Westside School. McCormack has been indicted on sexual abuse charges involving three boys.

The lawsuit was filed Friday on behalf of a former student of Our Lady of the Westside school identified only as "John Doe." It seeks ten (M) million dollars in damages.

The archdiocese didn't immediately return a call today seeking comment.
