The lawsuit, which seeks no monetary damages, was filed in August in St. Croix County Circuit Court, Wisconsin (Court File No.06CV581). It asks a state judge to force America's 194 Catholic bishops to disclose the names of roughly 5,000 proven, admitted and credibly accused abusive priests in the US. The suit is being brought by the family of Dan O'Connell of Wisconsin,who, along with a co-worker, was shot and killed in February 2002 by a suspected pedophile priest who also owned guns and pornography.

Lawsuit Filed Against All 194 U.S. Bishops
Local Catholic Bishop Named in Unprecedented Child Molestation Lawsuit
This must cost some $$ as this took place across the country. It appears that they are seeking justice not $$. I don't know how they will be able to force them to disclose the abusive priests.
We do have a National Sex Offender Registry. Shouldn't they have to register here too?!
