Abuse suit filed against Denver Archdiocese

DENVER (AP) ” A new lawsuit against the Denver Archdiocese accuses a late priest of abusing a 14-year-old boy nearly 40 years ago.

The man making the claim is not identified.

Victims advocates say he decided to come forward because of information released by the archdiocese in connection with other cases earlier this month.

The advocates say the documents outlined a history of abuse by the late Father Harold White, and what the church knew about those allegations at the time.

The man, a former altar boy, says he was abused when he was about 14 in either 1969 or 1970 at St. John the Evangelist Church in Loveland.
