Into the breach once more

Into the breach once more

A year after the Archdiocese of Boston settled more than 500 sex-abuse lawsuits, lawyer Mitchell Garabedian has filed nine more. What was he waiting for? The most prominent involves the former superintendent of archdiocesan schools, but his lawyer says he is being mistaken for a well-known pervert of the same name. But the guuy says that he distinctly remembers Fr. Eugene Sullivan being identified as superintendent of schools. The guy also says that in unrelated incidents, he was abused by two priests at his parish.

So why now? Why were these lawsuits filed so late? And nine at once? Sounds like another swing by Garabedien at a quick settlement by the archdiocese to make it go away.
