DIOCESE ESCAPES SEX SUIT (300M case ruled too late)

The state Court of Appeals rejected a $300 million lawsuit filed by 42 alleged victims of pedophile priests in Brooklyn and Queens, ruling the alleged victims waited too long to seek justice.  The state Court of Appeals dismissed the suit brought against the Diocese of Brooklyn in 2002, as well as a similar case upstate, because the 10-year statute of limitations on their complaints expired.
