Lawsuit Seeks List of Accused Priests in Duluth

A lawsuit filed on behalf of a man who claims he was sexually abused by a priest in the Diocese of Duluth in the 1970s is asking the diocese to release its list of 17 priests accused of molesting minors.
    
The lawsuit was filed Monday in St. Louis County District Court.
    
It alleges the diocese was negligent because it failed to protect children from a priest who had been previously accused of molesting boys. It says the diocese gave parents no warning that the priest was a risk.
    
In 2004, the diocese compiled a list of 17 priests who had been credibly accused of sexually abusing minors. Attorneys for abuse victims want that list to be public.
    
A message left with the diocese was not immediately returned.

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