The second lawsuit in two weeks was filed Wednesday against St. John’s Abbey. The lawsuit accuses the abbey of fraud and contends that three monks either solicited or engaged in sexual misconduct with a former St. John’s University student.
The lawsuit, filed in Stearns County District Court, alleges that the student was abused while attending St. John’s from 1982-1986. It names the Rev. John Kelly, the Rev. Finian McDonald and now-deceased Rev. Bruce Wollmering as those who were inappropriate with the student.
The lawsuit doesn’t identify the student, only saying that he is in his 40s and lives in Washington state.
