From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Cardinal Roger M. Mahony has gone to the U.S. Supreme Court in an effort to keep personnel files on priests confidential.

Lawyers for Mahony filed a petition to the Supreme Court on Thursday in the latest move to block a subpoena from Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Steve Cooley, who is seeking files as part of a grand jury investigation into alleged sexual abuse by priests.
