Green Bay diocese found guilty of fraud in abuse case
Catholic World News - May 22, 2012
A Wisconsin court has found the Diocese of Green Bay guilty of fraud in a sex-abuse case, and awarded $700,000 in damages to two abuse victims.
The jury said that diocesan officials committed fraud by assigning Father John Feeney to their parish in 1978, despite being aware that the priest had been charged with prior sexual assaults. Feeney was eventually convicted on abuse charges and laicized.
