New child sex abuse & fraud case against Catholic teacher is filed
The cleric, sued before, worked in at least three states: CA, IL & MN
Hes now still a cleric and quietly lives near an all-boys high school
But another civil case against him was settled in the Bay Area settled for $1 million
In 2003, Rose was named in a California civil suit as having abused a 14 year old boy on ski trip in 1982. In 2004, that suit was settled for $1 million. Rose was transferred back to Minnesota in 1983 when allegations first surfaced that he was an abuser.
The new lawsuit charges three Catholic institutions (the Christian Brothers of the Midwest, The Christian Brothers of Minnesota and DeLaSalle High School) with fraud because they represented to students and their families that Rose was safe when they knew he had sexually abused at least one boy.
The suit is being filed in Ramsey County Circuit Court, Minnesota. The Christian Brothers regional headquarters is in Burr Ridge, IL. Their Minnesota headquarters is at 1883 Laurel Avenue in St. Paul.
According to a 2008 newspaper account, Rose is believed to be living in Chicago in a Christian Brothers residence near the De La Salle Institute, a high school for boys. He worked for the Christian Brothers for at least two decades.
News conferences about the civil lawsuit against Rose will be held today in St. Paul MN and Chicago, IL (outside the current home of the defendant).
