Rhode Island high court: Legion of Christ must release documents related to widow’s will

Catholic World News - February 15, 2013

The Rhode Island Supreme Court has declined a request by the Legion of Christ to delay the release of documents related to the $60 million will of Gabrielle Mee.

Calling the public’s right to know “paramount,” a Rhode Island judge last month had ruled in favor of several media outlets that sought the release of documents related to the widow’s contributions to the Legion of Christ.

“There are yards of documents,” said a spokesman for the Legion after the Rhode Island high court’s ruling. “It’s done. They’re public. This ends the debate.”
