Federal judge rules IHS must release sex abuse report on Stanley Weber

A U.S. federal judge has ruled that Indian Health Service must make a report public, which details how the agency failed to stop pediatrician Stanley Patrick Weber from sexually abusing Native American children for decades, on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.

The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times sued the federal government in April asking for the release of the IHS report under the Freedom of Information Act.
IHS claimed the report on Weber was private because it was a “medical quality assurance review.”
