This week, Cardinal Roger Mahony makes one last ditch effort to prevent what happened in Boston from happening in LA, release of Catholic priest personnel files. We will cover document release up one side and down the other here at LA City Buzz, as this Thursday a hearing in LA Superior Court will finally decide whether files in the archdiocese possession on perpetrator priests - including records of contact with law enforcement - will be released to a judge for in camera review, and then possible release to the public archives.

Part of the settlement in July 2007 where 510 plaintiffs received $660 million from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles included an agreement between the archdiocese and plaintiffs that personnel files of these perpetrator priests would be made available to the public.
