Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro does not intend to let his investigation into child sexual abuse in the Catholic church go unnoticed.

On Friday, Shapiro said that he would take legal action next week to allow him to release a grand jury report on allegations of such abuse.

Earlier this month, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court blocked the release of the report that details clergy sexual abuse cases in six Catholic dioceses across the state.

The Supreme Court had invited the attorney general to “lodge an objection to a continued stay” of the report’s release. In a news release Friday, Shapiro said he would do just that on Monday.
