Local organization applauds document release, wants more
by Matt Doyle

Milwaukee---"This is a historic day for child sexual abuse victims," SNAP Midwest Director Peter Isely said.

The Milwaukee Archdiocese's decision to release thousands of documents about sex abuse spells temporary relief for some.

"We are halfway to the goal," Isely said.

It comes as the Archdiocese bankruptcy case continues. A spokesman said this will help move the bankruptcy case forward as well as help victims.

"Archbishop Listecki said if this is going to aid with healing, if this is going to move us forward, if this is going to bring us closer to resolution, let's do it," Spokesman Jerry Topczewski said.

The documents will be released July 1.
