LA diocese to turn over sex abuse files

LOS ANGELES — Five years after promising to do so, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles will give the confidential personnel files of about 200 priests accused of sex abuse and child molestation to a judge in December. Those documents — with the names of innocent individuals redacted — will ultimately be made public under the Archdiocese’s record $660 million settlement in 2007 to 508 people who said they were victims. During a hearing Friday, Judge Emily Elias asked lawyers for both the archdiocese and victims about the status of the redacted papers and when they could be delivered to her.
