Another suit filed alleging priest abuse in Hawaii

HONOLULU (AP) - Another lawsuit against the Diocese of Honolulu has been filed under a new Hawaii law providing a 2-year window for claims of sexual abuse against minors to be made, even if the statute of limitations has lapsed.

Attorneys for an unnamed Los Angeles man filed a lawsuit Tuesday claiming he was sexually abused by two priests while a boy growing up in Hawaii. The suit claims that as a child, he was sodomized in 1973 by Rev. Joseph Henry at St. Anthony's in Kailua. The suit says the boy reported the abuse to several years later to Rev. Joseph Ferrario, who also sexually abused him.

In 1982, Ferrario was installed as Bishop of Honolulu. Both priests have since died.

The diocese did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
