Another sexual abuse lawsuit has been brought against the Catholic Church, this time naming the Los Angeles Archdiocese and former priest Michael Baker. The lawsuit, filed by a 27-year-old man, claims that Baker sexually abused him on multiple occasions 15 years ago at St. Columbkille parish in South Los Angeles. The lawsuit also alleges that the church knew of Baker’s tendencies but still allowed him to spend time with children. Baker is currently serving 10 years and four months in prison on molestation charges. The lawsuit is seeking unspecified damages.
