A federal judge in Minneapolis dismissed civil suits against several therapists, the city of Jordan, city officials and police who were involved in the investigation of alleged child sex abuse in Minnesota’s Scott County. But U.S. District Judge Harry H. MacLaughlin let stand, for the present, suits filed by former defendants in the abuse cases against one police officer and two of the therapists who interviewed alleged child victims. During the investigation, 25 persons were charged with child sex abuse. One pleaded guilty, two others were acquitted by a jury and charges against the remaining defendants were dropped.
