Excerpt: “An attorney for the plaintiff cautioned Monday against reading too much into his decision to drop the case.
“My client stands by his claims he was abused,” said lawyer Thomas C. Crumplar. “The archdiocese is conducting its own investigation, and my client would be happy to participate.”
Neither Flood nor his accuser responded to requests for an interview. Archdiocesan officials also declined to comment.
Some of Flood’s former parishioners said Monday that the development should bring about Flood’s quick return to the ministry, and they suggested that the archdiocese may have acted too quickly when it suspended him, following a scathing grand jury report on its handling of sexual abuse cases.”
