The 5-million dollar lawsuit alleges that Father George Maddock abused the 9-year-old altar boy while swimming.
This is the first lawsuit against Father Maddock, who died recently in New York.
But several other priests on Guam - including former Archbishop Anothony Apuron - face nearly 200 lawsuits alleging abuse and a subsequent cover-up.
The latest lawsuit says the church hierarchy knew of Father Maddock's abuse but did nothing.
