Los Angeles archdiocese ordered to release accused priests' files
Catholic World News - December 11, 2012
A California court has ordered the Los Angeles archdiocese to produce personnel files for priests accused of sexual abuse by December 27.
Judge Emilie Elias said that she would review the priests’ files, and hear any arguments for withholding some information, in January.
The Los Angeles archdiocese, which has been resisting efforts to release the files for 5 years, has asked for a delay in the review. The archdiocese insists that it is complying with the court's orders, but says the latest changes in the approach to redacting the documents will necessitate a delay.
