Eric Iliff, a former seminarian at the OCA’s St. Vladimir’s Seminary, is suing for damages exceeding $10 million. Iliff claims to have been sexually abused in the course of the 2004-05 school year by Fr. Timothy Blumentritt, an Associate Professor of Pastoral Theology at the Seminary. Eric is said to have reported the abuse to the officials in June, 2005.
