INDICE DE GALERIAS
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Attorneys have announced the first civil lawsuit over alleged sex abuse by a priest since the Minnesota Legislature loosened the statute of limitations.
The lawsuit was filed Wednesday on behalf of an anonymous 51-year-old Twin Cities man who alleges he was sexually abused nearly 40 years ago by a former priest.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press (http://bit.ly/1764SsM ) reports the suit also accuses the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis and the Diocese of Winona of being a public nuisance for refusing to release the names of 46 priests "credibly accused" of molesting children.
Last week Gov. Mark Dayton signed a bill lifting a six-year statute of limitations for victims of childhood sexual abuse.
Both the Winona diocese and the Twin Cities archdiocese say they are committed to ensuring children's safety.
