Lawsuit Filed against Bishops, Diocese of Scranton
SCRANTON, Pa. -- Another civil lawsuit has been filed in response to the attorney general's grand jury report on priest abuse across Pennsylvania. This one is against a former Diocese of Scranton priest and the current and former bishops. Civil attorneys were in Scranton Tuesday to file the lawsuit on behalf of a 29-year-old man from Lackawanna County. He alleges that when he was a teenager, he was abused by a priest who was named in the grand jury report and has served prison time for abusing another teen boy.
