Ex-deacon George Brignac, who was accused decades ago of raping an altar boy at the Holy Rosary School in a case that led to a more than $500,000 settlement from the Archdiocese of New Orleans, has been named in another lawsuit filed Monday (Oct. 29) that alleges he sexually molested another altar boy at the same school between 1977 and 1982.

The 17-page suit, filed in Orleans Parish Civil District Court, claims that Brignac sexually assaulted the unnamed plaintiff, who was between the ages of eight and 13 when the instances occurred, on multiple occasions while teaching at the Holy Rosary School in New Orleans.
