FORT WORTH -- The Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests pressed Roman Catholic officials on Tuesday to suspend a former Arlington priest who has been accused in court documents of sexual misconduct with six women and girls. Members of the national survivors group delivered a letter to Fort Worth Bishop Kevin W. Vann urging him to call for the Rev. Joseph Tu Ngoc Nguyen's removal from the Houston parish where he now works. The Fort Worth Roman Catholic Diocese is preparing a response, a spokesman said. In the past several months, four women have come forward accusing Tu of groping them in the 1970s and '80s.
