posted on December 1, 2022

Fredrick Kunkle and Michelle Boorstein of The Washington Post report, “The Archdiocese of Baltimore confirmed Tuesday that it is helping pay the legal expenses of an anonymous group of people seeking to seal the proceedings around a report by the Maryland Attorney General’s Office on clergy sexual abuse of minors.” The report is the result of a four-year investigation and will contain the names of 158 abusive priests who tallied more than 600 victims over 80 years.
