Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court on Friday ordered the release of a 900-page grand jury report that details allegations of sexual abuse by more than 300 “predator priests” in six of the state’s Roman Catholic dioceses. The report, which the court had ordered a stay on just last month, has long been at the center of child sex abuse survivors’ calls for accountability. On Friday, the justices said the report will finally be made public in August, but without “individual specific information” on accused priests. The report will also undergo a redaction process before its release. The result of a two-year investigation, the report focuses not only on specific allegations of abuse but also on failures to address the allegations and obstruction of justice by individuals “associated with the Roman Catholic Church, local public officials and community leaders,” according to WTAE TV.
