The Diocese of Duluth plans Tuesday to release the names of its priests who have been credibly accused of sexual abuse.
    
The Duluth News Tribune reports the announcement comes several weeks after a lawsuit was filed seeking the release of information on the 17 priests.
    
The lawsuit alleges the diocese was negligent in allowing abuse to continue and has created a nuisance by not releasing the names of accused priests.
    
Earlier this month, the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis and the Diocese of Winona released lists of credibly abused priests, following a court order.
    
Duluth Bishop Paul Sirba will release the list during a 10 a.m. news conference Tuesday at the diocese's headquarters.
