According to a statement by the Archdiocese

An allegation has been brought by a mandated reporter within the Church to the St. Paul Police of inappropriate touching of a minor male on the buttocks by Archbishop John Nienstedt. The single incident is alleged to have occurred in 2009 during a group photography session with the archbishop following a confirmation ceremony.

Note – this is not a part of a lawsuit. It is a report by a mandated reporter made to the police.

Updates soon.
