Closing arguments will be heard next month in a sex abuse case against the Yakima diocese.

Defense for the diocese concluded arguments this week -- a man, identified as "John Doe" says he was raped by former deacon, Aaron Ramirez, in 1999.

Doe's attorneys say the church was negligent in monitoring Ramirez.

Doe is seeking more than $3 million in damages.
