NEW ULM, Minn. (AP) – A man is suing the Archdiocese of New Ulm on accusations a nun who’s now dead sexually abused him in the 1960s.

It’s the first case involving a nun filed under a state law temporarily lifting the statute of limitations on child sex abuse lawsuits.

The Shakopee man’s lawsuit claims Sister Mary Regina Hebig inappropriately touched him repeatedly when he was a fifth grader at a Madison Catholic school.

The diocese said in a written statement that it’s committed to offering help to anyone who says they’re a victim of sexual misconduct. It says that it wasn’t involved in hiring employees at the school.
