Ramsey County Minnesota Judge John Van de North has decided that documents and information and additional names of priests credibly accused of sexual abuse should be released in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis and the Diocese of Winona.

The Archdiocese and Diocese of Winona have fought for years to keep the names and information secret and the Archdiocese has objected to the depositions of both top Archdiocesan officials.
