More testimony was heard in the lawsuit against the Catholic Diocese of Yakima Thursday. A mental health counselor and the plaintiff's foster sister were the latest witnesses in federal court.

The counselor was used as an expert. He told the court he didn't think the diocese had proper oversight on the deacon candidate accused of raping a man known as John Doe.

That man says the crime happened when he was a teenager. He's suing the Yakima Diocese for more than $3 million. The trial is adjourned until Tuesday.
