Officials say another lawsuit has been filed alleging sexual abuse by a Catholic priest. The suit was filed yesterday in Bethel Superior Court.

The suit was filed by attorney Ken Roosa against the Society of Jesus and the Fairbanks Diocese. It alleges that two priests molested a boy who attended Catholic schools in the village of Holy Cross.

The suit says the Reverend Andrew Eordogh -- a Jesuit -- molested the boy in the late 1960s. The other priest died in 1992, and is not named as a defendant.

Roosa has now filed ten damage suits against priests.
