Rotten Tomatoes:

Marty Baron:
Did everyone read Eileen McNamara's column this weekend?

Boston Globe Worker:
That's the Geoghan case?

Marty Baron:
Yeah, what's the follow on that?

Ben Bradlee Jr.:
It-It's a column, what kind of follow are you thinking?

Marty Baron:
Uh... well apparently this priest molested kids in 6 different parishes over the last 30 years and the attorney for the victims, a Mr...

Eileen McNamara:

Marty Baron:
Thanks Eileen, Mr Garabedian says Cardinal Law found out about it 15 years ago and did nothing.

Paul Burke:
Yeah, I think that attorney is a bit of a crank, and The Church dismissed the claim.

Eileen McNamara:
He-said she-said.

Marty Baron:
Whether Mr Garabedian is a 'crank' or not, he says he has documents that prove that Cardinal knew.

Ben Bradlee Jr.:
As I understand that those documents are under seal.

Marty Baron:
Okay, but the fact remains a Boston priest abused 80 kids, we have a lawyer who says he can prove Law knew about it and we've written all of... uh... 2 stories in the last 6 months. This strikes me as an essential story to a local paper, I think the very least we have to go through those documents.

Paul Burke:
How would you like to do that?

Marty Baron:
Oh uh, I don't know what the laws are here, but in Florida we would go to court.

Ben Bradlee Jr.:
You wanna sue the Church?

Marty Baron:
Technically we wouldn't sue the Church, we'd file a motion to lift the seal on the documents.

Ben Bradlee Jr.:
The Church will read that as us suing them. So will everybody else.

Marty Baron:
Good to know.
