Four men have come forward with claims of sexual abuse when they lived in Catholic-run youth homes on the Westbank, according to The New Orleans Advocate.

The suite was filed after the Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans released names of dozens of clergy members it considers to have been "credibly accused" of sexually abusing children over the past several decades.

Eight clergymen who worked at the two homes are on the list, but the plaintiffs say the archdiocese is being totally up-front about past accusations. The list does not include the names of lay staff or religious brothers or nuns working at archdiocese facilities.
