SYRACUSE — Court dismisses gag order request

The state Supreme Court has thrown out a proposed gag order sought by a Catholic priest accused of molesting three women while he served at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Cortland.

Supreme Court Justice Edward D. Carni ruled Friday that the Rev. Thomas Keating failed to prove his case to keep the plaintiffs, identified as Jane Doe No. 1, and their attorney, from discussing, talking about or distributing materials or documents concerning the case with the media.

Keating most recently served as pastor of Most Holy Rosary Church in Maine, a post he had served since 1993. He removed himself from the church post in February, during the sexual-abuse investigation, at the request of the Syracuse Dioceses.

The civil suit was filed in March.
