The man who becomes Maryland’s new attorney general next month is weighing in on the possible release of a report detailing sexual abuse allegations in the Archdiocese of Baltimore.

Attorney General-elect Anthony Brown said he has been monitoring efforts to release the report which names more than 100 priests accused of abuse and more than 600 victims dating back 80 years.

Since it is based on grand jury testimony, current Attorney General Brian Frosh has asked a court to release the report.

Attorneys representing people who wish to remain anonymous have sought to block the report’s release.

Brown said that case will continue under his watch.

Brown takes the oath of office in January.
