MO Supreme Court Rules SNAP Must Reveal Docs to Church
January 3, 2012,0,1414396.story


The leader of a St. Louis-based group fighting sexual abuse by priests is standing his ground, and could face jail time for refusing to turn over documents to lawyers for the Catholic church.

The Missouri Supreme Court has ruled that the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, known as SNAP, has to turn over 23 years worth of e-mails, telephone logs, and letters to lawyers for a Kansas City priest.

SNAP director David Chlossey refused to answer questions about those documents yesterday.

He says the request is an attempt by the Catholic church to destroy SNAP by forcing it to reveal confidential information about sexual abuse victims.
