Court Upholds Dismissal Of School Abuse Lawsuit

Court Upholds Dismissal Of School Abuse Lawsuit
PIERRE, SD -

The South Dakota Supreme Court says people who allege they were sexually abused decades ago at an American Indian boarding school cannot continue their lawsuits against the religious organizations that ran the school.

In two rulings, the high court upheld a trial judge's decision to dismiss the lawsuits against Catholic Diocese of Sioux Falls and several religious organizations that ran St. Paul's School in Marty. The Yankton Sioux Tribe took over the school in 1975.

The Supreme Court says the students waited too long to sue Blue Cloud Abbey, Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament and the Oblate Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament. Those organizations ran the school.

The justices also say the students cannot sue the Catholic Diocese of Sioux Falls because it did not operate or control the school.
