Lawsuits filed under the state Child Victims Act allege that a retired Long Island Catholic priest, Msgr. Alan Placa, sexually abused adolescent and teenaged boys in the 1970s at the now-defunct St. Pius X preparatory seminary in Uniondale, and at St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in Glen Cove. On Thursday, an attorney representing complainants spoke about the cases.
