Suit Alleges Collusion Between Plaintiffs' Lawyers, Diocese in Abuse Settlements

The Diocese of Charleston denies the allegations, which were made in a suit filed earlier this year.  The suit was originally filed directly in the South Carolina Supreme Court, which refused to hear it under its original jurisdiction, and so it was refiled last week in trial court.  The suit alleges that the victims' lawyers put their own interests ahead of those of their clients; the victims' lawyers also deny the allegations.
