PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - Lawyers for a former Philadelphia church official are back in court Thursday.
Monsignor William Lynn's lawyers are asking a judge to have his clergy sex abuse cover-up case dismissed because of prosecutorial misconduct.
Lynn served nearly three years in jail before winning a retrial.
He is the first U.S. Roman Catholic Church official ever convicted of helping to shield child molesters.
The new trial is set for May.
