New Sex Abuse Claims Filed Against Delbarton School

Two more former students at a prominent New Jersey Catholic school claim in a lawsuit they were sexually abused by clerics in the 1970s and `80s.

Washington, D.C., resident Steve Badt says he was abused by Father Timothy Brennan while a student at the Delbarton School beginning in 1979. An unidentified plaintiff claims he was abused by Father Benedict Worry.

The two men join a lawsuit filed in March by brothers Bill and Tom Crane.

In a statement, the school says Brennan is still a monk but lives at a secure facility and has no contact with the general public. It says Worry resides at St. Mary’s Abbey, which operates Delbarton, but has had no contact with minors since January because of a complaint alleging misconduct in the 1990s.
