Another sad chapter in L.A. jurisprudence


Today's L.A. Times reports (click on this post's title) that a suspended priest of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles has appealed to the 2nd District Court of Appeal in Los Angeles against an earlier decision by a judge that his Archdiocesan personnel file must be turned over to four plaintiffs in a civil suit that charges he molested then when they were children.

The trial is set for November, but now is on hold until the appeal is heard.

The suspended priest's lawyer, Donald Steier, represents many accused priests. The appeal, reports the Times, "seeks to assert a number of individual rights, including privacy, attorney-client privilege and physician-patient privilege."

What more can we say about such news that has not been said already? Let us pray for strength for any souls whom the ongoing news of the scandals tempts to lose their faith.

We now have over 3100 signatures on our petition in support of Fr. Robert Altier.

If you have not yet signed, you can help us reach our goal of 5000, after which we intend to go the Vatican with the petition, by going to: crcoa.com.

God bless, yours in Their Hearts,
