KC diocese disputes order to pay $1.1 million in sexual abuse case

The order, issued March 23 by arbitrator Hollis Hanover, stems from a lawsuit filed three years ago alleging that the diocese and Bishop Robert Finn violated parts of a 2008 settlement. The issue that sparked the concerns was the diocese’s failure to immediately report the Rev. Shawn Ratigan after finding disturbing images of young girls on the priest’s laptop computer in late 2010.
