There is another sex abuse lawsuit against the Catholic Church in Minnesota.

Jeff Anderson's law firm will file a suit Monday against the Diocese of Duluth on behalf of a man in his fifties.

Last week the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis released the names of 30 priests credibly accused of assault.

The latest man says Father Robert Klein sexually abused him at Sacred Heart Church in Duluth. The suit alleges the diocese knew about Klein's inappropriate behavior with boys, and were negligent in supervising him.

They also want the Diocese of Duluth to release 17 names of accused and admitted child molesters in the diocese.
