A 43-year-old Delaware man who claims he was sexually abused in 1979 by a St. Mary Magdalen Roman Catholic Church priest filed a lawsuit Thursday, his attorneys said.

The man, who is going under the pseudonym, John Moe No. 3, claims he was abused by the former Rev. Edward F. Dudzinski, who coached a youth baseball team.

Dudzinski, whose priestly credentials were revoked by the pope several years ago, was named in the suit, along with the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington and St. Mary Magdalen parish.

The suit was filed under the Delaware Child Victim's Act of 2007.
