SNAP Sues Chicago Archdiocese


CHICAGO -- Victims of priest sexual abuse are filing an unusual class action lawsuit against the Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago.

Molestation victims and their attorneys are seeking a court injunction to force archdiocese officials to disclose the names of 55 local priests who have been accused of sexual abuse.

They also seek to prevent the destruction of archdiocese documents relating to molestation charges.

The suit demands that archdiocese records about child molestation be turned over for court supervision.
