Another lawsuit from a different family:
In his complaint, Chu says that his father, a retired professor of mechanical engineering and devout Roman Catholic, died in November 2009, naming Chu as his only heir.
Chinese-born James Boa-Teh Chu had converted to Catholicism during his marriage, his son says.
"Decedent was an annual charitable contributor to numerous charities over the course of his lifetime," the complaint states. "Decedent made annual contributions to the 'Legionaries of Christ' and related defendants beginning in the 1990s."
Chu says The Legionaries of Christ and affiliated entities solicited donations from his father while he lived in Rhode Island.
"Unbeknownst to decedent, while decedent was being solicited and consecrated as laity to the Legionaries, the Order was being investigated by the Roman Catholic Church hierarchy in Rome for grave improprieties within the Order," the complaint states.
"That investigation determined that the Order's founder had led a 'wasted life,' committed criminal acts and serious immoral behavior, including acts of sexual molestation, financial impropriety, and other deviant behavior repugnant to Catholic teaching and morals.
"The Legionaries pattern of exploitive fund raising activities in the United States has been subject to scrutiny including in the diocese of Baltimore and other areas."
Chu claims that his father would have never made donations or named the order as the beneficiary of his assets had he known about its founder's misconduct.
There's more. (Thank you, les)
