Jury selection is scheduled to begin in a Catholic order’s lawsuit claiming an attorney violated a confidentiality clause in a clergy sex abuse case.

The Order of St. Benedict of New Jersey sued Gregory Gianforcaro for telling reporters in 2012 that a more than 20-year-old settlement with a former Delbarton School student was “approximately seven figures.”

The lawsuit claims that statement was part of a “malicious and unethical attack” by Gianforcaro. Gianforcaro has denied the claims.
