New lawsuits are accusing the diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph in Missouri covered up and enabled clergy sex abuse.
The lawsuits, one filed Tuesday in Jackson County Circuit Court and the other on July 20, were announced Tuesday afternoon at a news conference in Kansas City. The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP) claims the diocese covered up abuse, which in turn allowed predator priests to gain access to and abuse others.
