Seattle man sues Spokane's Gonzaga Prep

SPOKANE -- A Seattle man has filed a civil lawsuit against Spokane's Gonzaga Preparatory School, saying the Jesuit-run school failed to protect him from a priest who was a serial sex predator.
The victim, identified in court papers as P.V., filed his case Thursday in Spokane County Superior Court. The lawsuit also names the Jesuits of the Missouri Province, the order that employed the priest, as a defendant.
The victim's attorney, Tim Kosnoff, says the behavior by the Missouri Province was particularly egregious and represented a grave failure to protect children.
The Missouri Province has already paid more than $575,000 in settlements to at least 13 of Father Jack Campbell's abuse victims who have come forward.
