ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Missouri Court of Appeals has ordered the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of St. Louis to release two decades' worth of sexual abuse allegations against priests to a plaintiff in a molestation case.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the court's Eastern District issued the ruling in a brief order Thursday. The archdiocese quickly announced it would appeal the ruling to the Missouri Supreme Court.

A St. Louis judge had given the archdiocese a Jan. 3 deadline to release the names of accused priests to a woman who filed suit in 2011 alleging she was molested as a child by a since-defrocked priest. But the Court of Appeals temporarily stayed the judge's order.

The woman's lawsuit alleges a pattern by the archdiocese of covering up abuse claims.
