NPR's Barbara Bradley reports on the methods the Roman Catholic Church has used to defend itself in court cases involving allegations of pedophilia against priests. The Church is accused of covering up the sexual misconduct of clergy members for decades. Out-of-court settlements and confidentiality agreements have kept numerous cases out of the news in the past. That has changed with several high profile cases over the last few months.
