A local lawyer will hold a news conference Wednesday to announce a lawsuit against Bishop Matthew Clark of the Rochester Roman Catholic Diocese. Attorney John Hayes of Odessa says Bishop Clark failed to protect a young man from being molested by a Catholic priest in Watkins Glen in the late 90's.

Hayes says he's filing the lawsuit in hopes of encouraging other victims to come forward. His news release was sent to our newsroom after 5 o'clock and we were unable to reach a diocesan spokesman for comment
