New Orleans Saints FO asks court to hide emails related to Catholic sex abuse scandal from public.


https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/...c-abuse-crisis

From what I gather, senior officials in the New Orleans Saints front office used team email addresses to advise their local Catholic dioscese on containing PR fallout of the widespread accusations of sexual abuse coverups in the Catholic Church (Gayle Benson, the owner, is devout). These were discovered in discovery (heh) by plaintiffs suing the church, and both the Saints and the church (double heh) are moving that these emails remain private, accusing the plaintiffs of wanting them for the sole purpose of releasing them to the public and smearing the defendants.

Any guesses what might happen as a result of this, NFL-wise?
