    On the heels of Pope Benedict XVI’s abdication, a Rhode Island judge ordered the release of documents relating to the internal affairs of priest group Legion of Christ on Friday. The pope had ordered investigations of the group in the past. Legion of Christ's founding member sexually abused seminarians and has fathered children by at least two women. The group has also been accused of defrauding a widow of tens of millions of dollars and using questionable fundraising tactics. The documents are expected to give new insight into the scandal, many years after the first allegations were filed in 1998.
