Civil Lawsuit Filed Against Duluth Diocese and New Ulm Diocese

by

DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - A civil lawsuit has been filed in Ramsey County on behalf of a man, known as Doe 30 who claims to have been sexually abused by a priest in the Duluth diocese in 1976.  Attorney Mike Finnegan says the lawsuit was filed against the Diocese of Duluth, the Diocese of New Ulm and the religious order, Oblates of Mary Immaculate.  According to the complaint, the victim was abused by Father J. Vincent Fitzgerald over a period of several weeks at a parish in Squaw Lake.  The lawsuit claims that all three defendants knew Father Fitzgerald, who died in 2009, was a risk to abuse but failed to remove him from his work with children.
