Ex-Priest Sued for Stealing Parishioner's Wife

An Illinois man is suing his former priest for professional negligence, infliction of emotional distress, and (because it's Illinois) alienation of affections.  In addition, he is suing the church for negligent supervision and retention.  According to the reports, the man and his wife sought marital counseling from the priest.  After the priest held many one-on-one counseling sessions with the wife, the couple broke up.  The priest left the priesthood, and the wife moved in with him within a month.  The story is here.  Thanks to 1L Deepa Jaisinghani for the tip.
