"Great consideration is given regarding the confidentiality of the 
decisions of a Church disciplinary council. No announcement is ever made 
when a member is placed on formal probation. Decisions to disfellowship 
or excommunicate are generally not announced publicly unless the 
transgression is widely known, the transgressor's behavior constitutes a 
threat to the Church or the community, or an announcement is necessary 
to dispel rumors. Even when an announcement is made, it is limited to a 
general statement of the outcome."  (M. Russell Ballard, Counseling with 
Our Councils: Learning to Minister Together in the Church and in the 
Family [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1997], 141 - 142.)
