ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A priest who is being sued by a woman who says he molested her as a child has resigned from the faculty at the University of St. Thomas.

Father Michael Keating took a leave of absence from his faculty position in the Department of Catholic Studies last fall. The Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1uWLDKK ) says the university posted his resignation letter this week.

A lawsuit filed in Ramsey County District Court claims Keating abused a 13-year-old girl in her family home while he was studying to become a priest more than a decade ago.

The 58-year Keating has denied any wrongdoing.
