Motion seeks to appeal Minn. judge's decision, block Nienstedt deposition


A motion filed Thursday could put the brakes on a possible deposition of St. Paul-Minneapolis Archbishop John Nienstedt regarding clergy sexual abuse in his archdiocese. 

According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the St. Paul-Minneapolis archdiocese filed a motion late Thursday night asking District Judge John Van de North to stay his decision from earlier in the week that depositions be taken of Nienstedt and former vicar general Fr. Kevin McDonough.
