The ruling allows the attorneys from John Doe 181 to proceed with their lawsuit.

The Court’s October 21, 2011 Ruling:

Defendant Conception Abbey Inc. has moved this Court, pursuant to Missouri Supreme Court Rule 55.27(a) (6), to dismiss Plaintiff’s Petition for Damages for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted. The Defendant asserts that dismissal is required because the pleaded facts in the Petition establish that Plaintiff’ s cause of action is barred by the applicable statute of limitations. The Motion to Dismiss has been fully briefed and argued and the Defendants Motion to Dismiss is hereby denied.
