Another repressed memory case has been filed against priests in the St. Joseph-Kansas City Catholic Diocese.
A woman listed only as Jane Doe has filed suit in Jackson County Circuit Court. She claims Thomas Cronin and John Tulipana sexually abused her when she was a teen-ager in the late 70s. The diocese has little comment except to say it is attempting to remove Tulipana, who resigned in 1994, from the piresthood.
The diocese reached a settlement in 2008 in which it paid $10 million to 47 people who claimed that had been abused by priests. One of them was Tulipana.
