A victim of clergy sex abuse spoke out Wednesday after settling his case with the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. The case involved Father Thomas Stitts, who was working at St. Leo’s Catholic Church in St. Paul when the alleged abuse occurred.
Victims of child sexual abuse were at the state capitol Thursday, fighting to change a Minnesota law that would allow survivors more time to take civil action.
Republicans at the Legislature want to shorten the statute of limitations for filing civil lawsuits and make other business-backed changes to Minnesota’s civil justice system.
