FORT WORTH — A man is seeking over $1 million in damages in a lawsuit against the Fort Worth Roman Catholic Diocese, alleging he was sexually assaulted by a now deceased priest in the 1990s.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports the man, who now lives near Spokane, Washington, said priest John Sutton was his seventh-grade history teacher at Notre Dame Middle-High School in Wichita Falls.

The San Antonio City Council voted Thursday to relax regulations for ride-booking companies like Uber and Lyft. But Uber, the strongest critic of the original ordinance,said the changes were not enough, and the company would still be leaving town. Here’s the story.

Olympic swimming is coming to the Alamo City next year. The 2016 U.S. Olympic Swimming Team will hold its final domestic training camp in San Antonio before heading to the XXXI Olympiad in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The 16-day long Summer Olympics will open on Aug. 5, 2016, at the iconic Maracanã Stadium. The swimming event is scheduled to take place from Aug. 6 to 13, primarily at Rio’s Olympic Aquatics Stadium, except for the open-water marathons, that will be held at the military base of Fort Copacabana.

The San Antonio Symphony has some unusual partners in this weekend’s performances.  Associate Conductor Akiko Fujimoto says those partners are coming all the way from Sweden.

“The band is called Arrival From Sweden and they sing the music of ABBA.”

Arrival from Sweden is an ABBA tribute band, and they’ll be playing ABBA hits with the symphony this weekend, stretching it in atypical directions.

Our homes are our most personal places. A new local photography exhibit features the work of a woman who convinced people to let her in, and let her shoot. I spoke to Lynn Gilbert, who explains it was more by happenstance than design.

“It wasn’t something that I planned to do.”

It started with a conversation at Turkey’s booth at a New York Travel Expo. She told the woman working there  “I’ll come for a week in Turkey if you’ll be my guide.”

The woman said sure, so Gilbert planned her trip.
