Plaintiff drops sexual abuse case against Vatican

2013-08-08

The case ended in the 9th U.S Circuit Court of Appeals. The plaintiff had already reached a financial settlement with the religious order the priest belonged to, but he argued the Vatican should also be held liable, claiming the priest was ultimately a Vatican employee.

The man claims he was sexually abused in 1965 and the case itself had been opened since 2002. Last year, U.S District Court Judge Michael Mosman, concluded that the Vatican did not employ the pedophile priest, nor was it involved in transferring the priest to another diocese.

Shortly after being elected, Pope Francis held a meeting with the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, where he confirmed, just like Benedict XVI, that there would be a 'zero tolerance' rule.
