Judge rules that lawsuit against Legion of Christ over bequest may proceed
Catholic World News - January 27, 2014
A federal judge has ruled that the family of a deceased Yale University professor may proceed with a lawsuit against the Legion of Christ.
After joining Regnum Christi in 1997, James Boa-Teh Chu, a mechanical engineering professor, reportedly named the Legion of Christ the beneficiary of his annuity because he believed Father Marcial Maciel was a saint, according to the Associated Press.
Judge Patricia Sullivan stated that “the Legion was fostering this image of Father Maciel in Dr. Chu's mind at the same time that it was aware of the facts being uncovered by the Vatican’s investigation.”
