SNAP To File Lawsuit Against Pope, Vatican in MilwaukeeA group representing sexual abuse victims is filing an unprecedented lawsuit Thursday against the Vatican, a lawsuit that names Pope Benedict XVI. The suit stems from the Fr. Lawrence Murphy sex abuse case.

At 12:00 p.m. CDT Thursday, clergy abuse survivors will walk into the Federal Courthouse in Milwaukee and file a lawsuit against the Vatican.

They are requesting names of all known priest sex offenders as well as secret documents associated with each case. The lawsuit stems from the case of pedophile priest Fr. Lawrence Murphy which made headlines around the world.

He was accused of molesting as many as 200 boys at Saint John's School for the Deaf. Members of SNAP, The Survivors' Network of Those Abused by Priests, insist that then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, knew about Murphy's abuse but failed to contact law enforcement or even remove him from priesthood.
