“Release of summaries Los Angeles Archdiocese records in the
civil sexual abuse case appears to be little more than a public
relations ploy. The real question is why the Archdiocese refuses to
turn over Grand Jury subpoenaed personnel records to prosecutors.
Three years ago, I urged Cardinal Mahony to provide the fullest
possible disclosure of evidence of sexual abuse by clergy. Despite
two court rulings ordering disclosure, Cardinal Mahony continues to
claim “confidentiality privileges” that no court has recognized.
What we’re looking for is evidence and investigative leads, not
institutional mea culpas.”
