Two St. Paul attorneys have recently claimed that substantial evidence incriminates the Vatican in clergy abuse cases and that Catholic church leaders have been covering up Catholic sex abuse scandals involving priests accused of priest abuse and child sex abuse. These lawyers claimed that the sex abuse occurred in Minnesota, and they also claim that the priest is still working with the church in India. Documents produced point to the bishop of Crookston, who informed Rome that Father Joseph Jeyapaul allegedly sexually assaulted 2 teenage girls while working in Minnesota.

Statute of Limitations for Civil Cases:

  • The state’s discovery rule specifies an action: must start within 6 years the victim knew or recognized that the sex abuse injury was caused by the sex abuse, the victim doesn’t have to establish a single act in an ongoing series of sex abuse acts that caused the injury, and the knowledge of a parent or guardian is not considered the knowledge of a sexually abused minor.
