Uh, oh for Cardinal Law

Uh, oh for Cardinal Law

The judge overseeing most of the lawsuits against the Archdiocese of Boston slapped down its request that personnel records turned over to plaintiffs be sealed. While that was certainly humiliating (she used some harsh language), something else she said also raised the specter of problems for Cardinal Law.

    Judge Constance M. Sweeney wrote that, contrary to Law’s testimony, the records show that some priests who had molested children were given new parish assignments even though church officials had reason to believe the priests were continuing to abuse children.

“Contrary to Law’s testimony…”—Is that a threat of a claim of perjury?
