However, the lawsuits were not filed in court at that time. Doug Mullin, OSB, as the offender. Mullin was the Prep School Dean of Students at that time. Mullin adamantly denies the allegation. Mullin has voluntarily stepped back temporarily from public priestly ministry and also from his longtime role as Faculty Resident in the residence halls at the University. Mullin continues in his Vice-Presidential role with Saint John's University, as would any other employee facing an unproven allegation of wrongdoing.
