A Mexican man who says he was repeatedly raped by a priest who was shuttled between southern Mexico and Los Angeles in the late 1980s filed a lawsuit Tuesday, alleging that Cardinal Roger Mahony and his Mexican counterpart conspired to hide the alleged predator’s 20-plus years of abuses to protect the church from scandal.
The complaint filed in Los Angeles relies on a more than 200-year-old U.S. law allowing foreign victims of human rights abuses to bring their perpetrators to justice in U.S. courts.

The 50-milliliter vials of anesthetic linked to a hepatitis C outbreak would have been enough to knock out a 600-pound gorilla during a colonoscopy, an anesthesiologist testified Tuesday.
Using the example to show why the large vials of propofol were unnecessary in an endoscopy center, Dr. Nicola D’Attellis said only 35 milliliters of anesthetic would be required to sedate an ape for the typical 14-minute endoscopy procedure.
