Shapiro says he will ask state Supreme Court to lift stay quickly.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said he is tired of waiting for the release of one of the most sweeping reports of its kind in the United States.

Shapiro said on Friday that he will file a legal motion on Monday to make public the grand jury investigative report on child sexual abuse in six of the state’s Roman Catholic dioceses, including the Catholic Diocese of Erie.

“The people of Pennsylvania have a right to see the report, know who is attempting to block its release and why and to hear the voices of the victims of sexual abuse within the church,” Shapiro said in a statement.
