New parish creditors committee forms

| May 21, 2015 | 0 Comments

A bankruptcy judge has appointed a committee of parish creditors with claims against the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis separate from sexual abuse claimants to work toward a plan for Reorganization with the archdiocese, claimants and the archdiocese’s insurers. Judge Robert Kressel made the ruling following a May 7 hearing.

“It is anticipated that the committee will also pursue insurance coverage that may be available to parishes in order to negotiate a global resolution with those individuals with claims of clergy sexual abuse against the archdiocese and parishes,” said Charles Rogers, an attorney for Briggs and Morgan representing the archdiocese. “Parish involvement is necessary in order to negotiate a final global resolution of these claims and to further the healing process.”
