Lawsuit filed against Yakima Diocese claims abuse

YAKIMA, Wash -- A new lawsuit has been filed against the Yakima Diocese. It alleges child sex abuse by former priests.

The suit claims the abuse happened to a woman back in the 1970s. She was a parishioner between 8 and 12-years-old at the time.

The lawsuit claims the Diocese should have known about the danger before letting the priests into the church.

It's being handled by Tamaki Law which has successfully sued over priest sex abuse before.
