The Archdiocese of Los Angeles has released the personnel files of 124 Catholic priests as part of the 2007 clergy abuse legal settlement. 

The confidential files provide details on how archdiocesan leaders addressed decades of sex abuse claims against priests. See files here.

If you are Catholic or have been involved with the Catholic Church, how does this information release affect you, your family and the Church?

KPCC journalists want to hear from Catholics, clergy, survivors and others about the benefits or harms they see coming from the Church's policy of keeping allegations confidential, and the public release of these files.
