Another Lawsuit Filed Against PriestJul 16, 2004 | AP Another lawsuit alleging sexual abuse by a priest has been filed against the Roman Catholic Diocese of Sioux City.
A former alter boy at the now-closed St. Francis of Assisi in Sioux City claims he was abused by the Reverend George McFadden in the mid-1960s.
The lawsuit, filed this week in Woodbury County District Court, is the 19th against the diocese and McFadden. Four of the lawsuits were settled.
Most of the lawsuits concern McFadden's actions while he was at St. Francis in the 1960s. Others allege abuse while he was at Immaculate Conception parish in Sioux City and St. Joseph's parish in Jefferson.
