Some SNAP E-Mails Handed Over, Others Withheld

Laurie Goodstein, Missouri: [Some] Documents Turned Over in Priest’s Abuse Case, NYTimes (Sept. 14, 2012):

After losing its appeals, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests has turned over about 180 documents that were subpoenaed by lawyers for a Roman Catholic priest accused of sexual abuse. The Survivors Network had argued that the documents, mostly e-mails, should remain confidential because they contained information about victims. ... Among the documents it withheld were those pertaining to the Rev. Shawn Ratigan, a Kansas City priest who pleaded guilty last month to child pornography charges and is still the target of civil lawsuits. ...


I wonder what is in those withheld e-mails. (SNAP "encourages" [alleged] victims of clerical sex abuse to come forward. SNAP cooperates with tort lawyers.)
