A lawsuit will demand that the Diocese of St. Cloud release a list of priests accused of sexual abuse.

A St. Paul attorney announced one of his clients will file a civil lawsuit asking for the list.

The client says he was abused by a priest in the 1960s and says keeping the list secret is causing him additional harm.

The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, the Diocese of Winona, the Diocese of Duluth, and St. John’s Abbey have all released similar lists.
