    Judge Allows Ex-Altar Boys' Suit Against Fall River Bishop to Proceed

    A judge has ruled that a lawsuit against a former Roman Catholic bishop in Massachusetts who allegedly failed to properly supervise a priest accused of molesting two altar boys can move forward.

    The Standard-Times reports that a judge this month ruled a jury should decide the case involving former Diocese of Fall River Bishop Daniel Cronin.

    The plaintiffs say they were abused by a now-deceased priest in the 1970s and 1980s while he served at St. Anthony's Church in Falmouth.

    They say Cronin should have been suspicious of and investigated the priest for spending a lot of time with adolescent boys.
