Diocese of Steubenville resumes talks of possible civil lawsuit


STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (WTRF) – The Diocese of Steubenville is currently in negotiations with their former comptroller.

After an internal investigation, authorities found ” federal, state and local payroll taxes were withheld from employees’ checks from 2004 through 2016, and not sent to the appropriate taxing authorities.”

The Diocese has since paid back $3.5 million dollars with interest.

Discussions have now begun about a possible civil lawsuit.
