More Alaska Natives come forward for abuse lawsuit
Twenty more Alaska Natives have come forward to join a lawsuit that alleges sexual abuse by Jesuit priests.

The new plaintiffs join 43 Alaska Natives who filed the lawsuit last month. They say Alaska was a "dumping ground" for "problem priests."

The lawsuit also added another defendant, a list that includes Seattle University President Stephen Sundborg, who was head of the Jesuits in the Northwest. The plaintiffs say he knew about the "problem priests."
