Molestation Lawsuit

By  | 

A lawsuit accusing a monsignor at a Catholic church school in York of molesting a boy in the 1970s has been settled.

Court documents filed in U.S. District Court said the lawsuit - filed by Robert P. Goodman against Monsignor Jerome Murray - was settled last week.

Goodman now lives in Arizona.

He alleged that Murray physically and sexually molested him repeatedly in 1973 and 1974 while he was in the fifth through seventh grades at St. Joseph's Catholic School.

Murray, St. Joseph's and the Diocese of Lincoln were named as defendants.

Their lawyers did not immediately return calls to their offices seeking comment.

Goodman's lawyer William Walker of Tucson, Ariz. was out of the country Tuesday and unavailable for comment.

Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.
