Abuse claim against archdiocese denied

An alleged victim of priest sexual abuse has failed to convince a federal appeals court that he did not wait too long to make a claim for money damages against the bankruptcy estate of the Archdiocese of Portland.
John Doe 150, as he is identified in court papers, had asked the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to reverse a federal judge’s ruling that his lawsuit is time-barred.
The appeals panel agreed with the judge that the plaintiff either knew or should have known of his abuse prior to a bankruptcy court-imposed deadline for filing claims in the archdiocese’s bankruptcy case.
