4 new lawsuits filed against the Roman Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh

Four new child abuse lawsuits have been filed against the Roman Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh in the wake of a grand jury report in August.

All of the new lawsuits accuse priests who are named in the grand jury report of sexual abuse that the accusers say took place when they were children.

The lawsuit alleges there are new cases of fraudulent concealment of child sex abuse.

One victim claims he was assaulted by Edward Joyce when he was 11 years old and that the abuse continued for several years.

The incidents allegedly happened at Saint Joseph Church Parish on the North Side, where Joyce was a priest.

The main goal of the victim in each suit is for the Roman Catholic Church to take responsibility for what the victims say happened to them.
