FILE - In this Nov. 30, 2004 file photo, Pope John Paul II gives his blessing to father Marcial Maciel, founder of the Legion of Christ, during a special audience at the Vatican. Pope Benedict XVI took over the Legion in 2010 after a Vatican investigation determined that Maciel had sexually molested seminarians and fathered three children by two women. A U.S. judge has thrown out a lawsuit contesting the will of Gabrielle Mee, an elderly widow who gave some $60 million to the disgraced Legion of Christ. But Judge Michael Silverstein of Rhode Island Superior Court wrote in his Sept. 7, 2012 decision that he found evidence that Mee had been unduly persuaded to change her trusts and will and give the Legion her money.
