New Lawsuit Alleges Sexual Abuse By Priest


Steve Miller Reporting

CHICAGO (WBBM Newsradio 780) -- The Chicago Roman Catholic Archdiocese has been hit with another lawsuit from a man who says he was abused by a priest when he was younger.

This latest lawsuit was filed by a man who wants to be known only as "Juan Doe," a 31-year-old Hispanic man living in the suburbs, who says he was abused from age 13 to 16, in the late '80s.

The suit has been filed against the Chicago Archdiocese and against a former priest - a man who resigned from the archdiocese in the early '90s.

Newsradio 780 is not naming the priest because his accuser - the plaintiff in the civil lawsuit - has not come forward with his own name.
