Former island priest Louis Brouillard is named anew in a clergy sex abuse complaint filed Wednesday by a former altar boy and former Boy Scouts of America scout.
The plaintiff, identified in court documents only as J.Q., was about 13 to 15 when Brouillard allegedly sexually abused and molested him, from about 1973 to 1975.
The complaint says Brouillard's sexual abuses occurred when J.Q. was an altar boy at a Mangilao parish and as a member of the Boy Scouts' Mangilao Troop 14, for which Brouillard was a scout master.
"On numerous occasions, while swimming, Brouillard would instruct the boys to remove their clothes and swim naked," the complaint says. "During these occasions, Brouillard would be groping at J.Q.'s private parts at the same time."
J.Q., represented by attorney David Lujan, is the 59th person to file a Guam clergy sex abuse lawsuit in local and federal courts against the Archdiocese of Agana, priests and other entities such as the Boy Scouts of America and its Aloha Council's Chamorro District. Now 57 and living on Guam, J.Q. demands a jury trial and $10 million in minimum damage.
