The Christian Broadcast Network website reports today (June 28, 2012) that a woman -- who claims a priest repeatedly molested her during two years of exorcism sessions -- has filed a lawsuit against the Catholic Diocese of Arlington, Virginia, its bishop, and an anti-abortion ministry that employed the exorcist.
The lawsuit -- filed earlier this month in Arlington County Circuit Court -- seeks more than $5.3 million in damages.
According to the complaint, the woman -- identified in court papers by the pseudonym Jane Doe -- went to the Rev. Thomas Euteneuer for spiritual help in February 2008.
The woman alleges that Euteneuer's sessions with her frequently involved inappropriate touching and directing her to undress.
