St. Louis Archdiocese Wins Delay In Abuse Case

|ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Missouri Supreme Court is giving the Archdiocese of St. Louis additional time to release the names of more than 100 employees accused of child sexual abuse since 1986.|
The high court's ruling on Monday afternoon came after the archdiocese sought more time to comply with a lower court order to provide the names of 115 to lawyers for a woman who is suing the archdiocese.
The woman was 19 when the lawsuit was filed in 2011. She claims the abuse began when she was 5 years old and attended St. Cronan's parish in the city. The now-defrocked priest had been convicted of sexually assaulting an 11-year-old boy at a University City parish decades earlier.
The state Supreme Court order delays release "until further notice from the court."
