West Seneca resident Kevin Brun waited a long time for a moment like Monday morning, when New York Attorney General Letitia James sued the Buffalo Diocese, along with retired Bishop Richard J. Malone and retired Auxiliary Bishop Edward M. Grosz, over their handling of clergy sexual abuse cases.

Brun said the lawsuit and an investigative report on the Buffalo Diocese corroborated his own experiences with the church since he alleged being abused by a priest more than 40 years ago.

“It only proves what I’ve been feeling and what I’ve known deep in my heart from the outset, that there were coverups, there were priests that were transferred, priests that were given recommendations for jobs by Bishop Malone and others, when they had full knowledge that there were credible claims of sexual abuse lodged against them,” said Brun.
