nothing to hide

By Diogenes (articles ) | Dec 01, 2009

The Diocese of Bridgeport spent 8 years fighting to prevent the release of records involving sex-abuse cases. Dozens of pleas and motions in state courts. Two trips to the Connecticut Supreme Court. Three efforts at the US Supreme Court. All to no avail. Today, in compliance with a court-ordered deadline, diocesan spokesman Joseph McAleer says that the documents will be released

But McAleer warned that the documents may not contain much new information.

Right. There's nothing significant in the files. The diocese only fought against disclosure because of the principle of the thing. Got it.

    That's okay, they've arranged for the CRU to handle the release of the documents.
