An ongoing New York investigation that some think could hold a “bombshell” about abuse in the Catholic Church remains secret — and victims want to know what’s in it.
“We think that New Yorkers deserve the same transparency and openness that citizens in the state of Pennsylvania received from the attorney general report there. And our letter is an attempt to encourage Attorney General Letitia James to do the same thing,” said attorney James Marsh, whose firm is representing hundreds of people who say they were abused by priests.
AG James hasn’t commented on the letter. She didn’t start the investigation, her predecessor Barbara Underwood did.
“I think the issue with the Catholic Church is they started down this path of transparency. This is just one more aspect of giving a full accountability of the wrongs of the past so that they can move forward with a new day and a better outcome for children in the future,” Marsh said.
