A former Malvern Preparatory School student has sued the school, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, and a former teacher who he contends sexually abused him during his freshman year.
The plaintiff, a Delaware County man identified in the complaint as John Doe 191, alleges that he was sexually abused in 1997 and 1998 by the Rev. John R. Liggio. The priest was the campus ministry director and taught religion at the school run by the Order of St. Augustine, which also is being sued. Liggio, who is believed to be living in Florida, could not be reached for comment Wednesday.
