Court-Ordered Release of Confidential Church Documents in L.A. Reveals Priests Confession, Leads to Man’s Relief

For years, Damian Eckert had been part of an effort to pry confidential files from clergy members at the now-closed St. Anthony’s Seminary in Santa Barbara who’d been accused of molesting children. The battle over releasing thousands of once-secret pages went all the way to the California Supreme Court.” By Ashley Powers, Los Angeles Times

These secret documents were made public this past May, but were redacted to remove the names of Church hierarchy, like Cardinal Roger Mahony, so that the Church would not be further embarrassed. A recent court order has made the non-redacted documents public.
