'Lori should not appeal'

More than a dozen victims of sexual abuse by priests and their supporters marched to the Catholic Center Tuesday afternoon to urge Bishop William E. Lori not to pursue any appeals to block the release of thousands of documents detailing abuse by clergy since the 1960s.

But Lori was not available so the protesters left a letter at the front desk and were given a written response from Bridgeport diocese officials.
