Will court allow Church to redact abuse files? Decision slated for Monday, Dec. 17

Priest Abuse Files May Be Released without Church Officials’ Names
At a judge’s direction, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles redacted the identities of members of the church hierarchy. But another judge has the final say.

In its landmark $660-million settlement with victims of sexual abuse five years ago, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles agreed to make public the confidential personnel records of all priests accused of molesting children … But the documents have been scrubbed of what many regard as the most important information: the identities of the members of the church hierarchy who reshuffled abusers.” By Harriet Ryan and Victoria Kim, Los Angeles Times, Dec. 7, 2012
