Court Affirms Ruling Favoring SD Diocese
January 26, 2011, 6:24 AM
SIOUX FALLS, SD -
A federal appeals court has upheld a judge's ruling favoring the Catholic Diocese of Rapid City in a lawsuit brought by a woman who says a priest sexually assaulted her in 1987.
A judge last year granted summary judgment in favor of the diocese on the grounds that Pamela Baye and her husband, Sylvan Baye, filed their lawsuit after the statute of limitations ran out. The couple appealed, but the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis affirmed the decision this week.
The lawsuit said it was during therapy in 2006 that Pamela Baye remembered the assault from 19 years earlier.
