Lawsuits accuse Knights of Columbus of child abuse

The Knights of Columbus was sued on Tuesday by two men who said they were sexually abused as children by a leader of a youth group run by the Roman Catholic fraternal organization.

The federal lawsuits allege that Knights of Columbus officials knew a leader of the Columbian Squires youth group in Texas was molesting children but did not make any effort to stop him or remove him from the position.

The suits are believed to be the first child sex abuse claims filed against the Catholic group, said Jeffrey Herman, the attorney representing the two alleged victims.

“Like so many victims, these two men have suffered in silence for literally decades, and finally they are getting help,” said Herman.

The Roman Catholic Church has been rocked by sex abuse scandals worldwide. Some priests have been convicted of pedophilia, other cases have been settled in civil courts and the church has paid millions of dollars in damages.
