Another Suit Is Filed against Former Priest

St. Louis Post Dispatch
August 28, 2005

A former student at New Haven High School has filed a civil lawsuit against former St. Louis priest James Beine in St. Louis Circuit Court.

The former student, called John Doe in the lawsuit, said he was sexually abused by Beine several times beginning in 1978 at the high school, where Beine was a counselor. The lawsuit, filed Friday, also named the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of St. Louis, Archbishop Raymond Burke and the school district.

The suit was the second filed against Beine in as many days. On Thursday, a Florida man, now 53, filed a civil lawsuit saying he was abused by Beine at St. Monica Catholic School in Creve Coeur when he was in the sixth and seventh grades.

The Missouri Supreme Court ordered Beine released from prison in June after overturning an indecent exposure conviction. The archdiocese said recently it had settled nine civil lawsuits for more than $400,000 alleging sexual improprieties or abuse by Beine.
