Minnesota archdiocese again seeks delay in releasing abuse files

Catholic World News - March 26, 2014

The Archdiocese of St. Paul-Minneapolis has again asked a Minnesota court to extend the deadline for the release of confidential files of priests accused of sexual abuse.

Attorneys for the archdiocese told the court that the “exhaustive, time consuming, and extremely expensive and burdensome process” of preparing files for release made it difficult to meet a March 31 deadline. The archdiocese has asked for an extension of 90 days.

    The Diocese sounds a lot like the IRS which is delaying the delivery of documents to Congress. That's not a strategy that builds public confidence.
