Lawsuit filed against Yakima Diocese claims abuse


YAKIMA, Wash — A new lawsuit has been filed against the Yakima Diocese. It alleges child sex abuse by former priests.

The suit claims the abuse happened to a woman back in the 1970s. She was a parishioner between 8 and 12-years-old at the time.

The lawsuit claims the Diocese should have known about the danger before letting the priests into the church.
