Mahony Must Hand Over Priests' Personnel Files

The US Supreme court ruled today that Los Angeles Archdiocese Cardinal Roger Mahony must hand over to LA prosecutors the personnel files of two priests accused of molesting children. Cardinal Mahony requested to keep the files private, but justices refused to review the matter. Today's ruling is likely to have implications for hundreds of other such cases in Los Angeles and beyond. Host Patt Morrison talks with Stanley Goldman, Loyola Law School professor, about the legal ramifications; and Mary Staggs Grant, Western Regional Director SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests.
