Woman Sues St. Thomas Professor, Alleging Sex Abuse
(St. Paul, MN) -- A 28-year-old woman who alleges she was sexually abused when she was 13 years old has filed a lawsuit against a Catholic priest and professor at the University of Saint Thomas. Attorney Jeff Anderson says the victim reported the abuse by the Reverend Michael Keating to the Archdiocese in 2006 but their investigation was a sham. Officials at Saint Thomas confirm Keating is on leave, but are not commenting on the allegations or the reason for his sudden time off. The Archdiocese has not immediately commented.
