The Diocese of Wilmington is being sued in what's being described as the first Delaware case alleging sexual abuse of siblings.
Two brothers are suing, saying they were abused by former diocesan priest Father Eugene Clarahan when they were altar boys in 1980. The brothers, identified as John Coe #2 and John Coe #3, say Clarahan was a family friend, and that he was drunk when he assaulted them at a family holiday party.
