Five years ago, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles reached a settlement with more than 500 victims of sexual abuse by priests. One of the provisions was that the church make public its confidential files on clergy sex abuse. On Thursday, the archdiocese posted 10,000 pages of files on its website.
Cardinal Roger M. Mahony, formerly Archbishop of Los Angeles, was relieved of his duties because of mishandling past sex abuse allegations. Auxiliary Bishop Thomas J. Curry also resigned.
