A former associate priest at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in West Point is suing the Archdiocese of Omaha for $2.1 million, claiming the church unjustly forced him to resign and tarnished his image by publicizing that he had acted improperly with young adults and minors when he says he did nothing wrong nor was ever prosecuted or convicted of any crimes.

Father Andrew Syring resigned from his position in 2018 and was never given another position within the church.

In a court filing, Syring also says the Archdiocese unjustly put him on a list of priests who committed criminal sexual misconduct.
