Sioux City Diocese faces another sexual abuse lawsuit


SIOUX CITY, Iowa Another sexual abuse lawsuit has been filed against the Sioux City Roman Catholic Diocese and a former priest.

In the lawsuit, a woman accuses the Reverend George McFadden of sexually abusing her in the 1950's while he was an associate pastor at a Sioux City parish and head of the parish elementary school.

More than two dozen people have filed sexual abuse lawsuits against the Sioux City diocese and McFadden. The latest lawsuit, filed this week in Woodbury County, claims the diocese was negligent.
