40 Plaintiffs Added To Suit Against Helena Diocese

c/o clericalwhispers

Attorneys have added 40 new plaintiffs to the 34 already suing the Roman Catholic diocese of Helena over sexual abuse they say they suffered as children at the hands of clergy members. Missoula attorney J.R. Casillas filed the amended lawsuit in Helena district court on Thursday. The plaintiffs are all adults and the estate of one deceased person. They say the diocese must answer for gross negligence in allowing the alleged abuse to take place from the late 1940s to through the 1970s in the towns of St. Ignatius, Missoula and Arlee.

A separate lawsuit was filed earlier this week by another 45 Native American plaintiffs who are making similar allegations of abuse at the hands of Ursuline nuns and priests in St. Ignatius.
