Jeff Anderson, a St. Paul attorney who has worked to have similar lists released from other dioceses in Minnesota, said the New Ulm list should be released as soon as possible. He also said the names of the two priests should remain on the list. Molestation investigations completed by bishops, which were used to determine if a priest's name should be included on one of the lists, met high standards for credibility, he said.
"When a bishop puts them on the list, you've got to know they had the goods," he said.
Officials with the Diocese of New Ulm have not responded to requests for interviews about the molestation allegations against priests serving at churches in the diocese.
