Unsealed documents in Memphis

 |  NCR Today

The (Tennessee) Commercial Appeal posted today documents from $2 million law suit settled by the Catholic Diocese of Memphis that the courts unsealed on Tuesday.

According to the Commercial Appeal’s Web site, the records “show that at least 15 priests have been accused of sexual misconduct over some four decades in the Memphis diocese. More than 10,000 pages of depositions, pleadings and documents also show abusive priests were moved quietly from parish to parish and diocese to diocese to avoid scandal and to protect the priests, the plaintiff's attorney said.”
