Austin, TX (rushPRnews) 03/01/12 — New lawsuit filed against Roman Catholic Diocese of Austin - Diocese yet to answer

Houston personal injury law firm Sutliff & Stout, PLLC filed a lawsuit in Travis
County District Court this week on behalf of a man who was sexually abused by a
Catholic Priest at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in San Saba, Texas. The Roman Catholic
Diocese of Austin is in charge of St. Mary’s Catholic Church. The abuse occurred when
the man was 11 years old and happened on many occasions until the man moved away
from San Saba, Texas.
The lawsuit alleges, among other things, negligence on behalf of the Catholic Diocese in
addition to sexual assault charges against the priest in question.
When asked to comment on this lawsuit, Graham Sutliff was quoted as
saying, “Unfortunately, our client’s lawsuit cannot undo the abuse that he suffered. But
it can give our client, as well as other victims of sexual abuse, a voice. As a society,
we have an obligation to bring these actions to light and hold the parties involved
accountable for the abuse that occurred.”
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Austin has yet to answer the lawsuit.
