Harrisburg, Pa., Jul 27, 2018 / 16:20 pm America/Denver (CNA).
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Friday ordered that a redacted version of a grand jury report detailing sex abuse in six of the state's eight Catholic dioceses be released next month.
News outlets, victims, and the state attorney general have pressed for the release of the report.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court had stayed the release of the report June 20, after numerous individuals named in the report objected to its release, citing concerns of due process and reputational rights guaranteed by the state constitution.
Lawyers for the media outlets requesting the report's release have said a redacted version could be released to respond to those concerns, while the court considers challenges to the full report's release.
The court's July 27 order effectively adopted that suggestion.
