The family of a boy allegedly molested by a convicted Catholic priest is now suing the Chicago Archdiocese.The lawsuit claims Daniel McCormack molested the boy at school in 2004 and then at a White Sox game the next year. The family's attorney said he expected the lawsuit to be resolved in a settlement next week.

McCormack pleaded guilty last year to sexually abusing five boys.

The archdiocese said this lawsuit is not a new case of abuse. Instead, the lawsuit is a finalization of a legal process on this particular case.
