Duluth Diocese to Release Names of Priests Accused of Abuse


The Diocese of Duluth says they will be releasing the names of priests accused of sexually abusing minors Tuesday morning.

A man known as “Doe 28” filed a lawsuit earlier this year alleging he was abused by Father Robert Klein in the 1970s.

The suit is seeking $50,000 and the identification of 17 total priests allegedly accused of abuse.

Tomorrow, Bishop Paul Sirba will release the names of priests that are “credibly accused.” It is not clear how many that is.

The press conference starts at 10 a.m. Tuesday.
