Duluth diocese concludes bankruptcy

DULUTH, Minn. — Scores of child sexual abuse victims in the Diocese of Duluth will soon share tens of millions of dollars in compensation, following a federal judge’s final approval Monday of a bankruptcy reorganization plan for the diocese.

The plan provides abuse survivors with about $40 million and access to the records of priests who molested them.

“The diocese (must) turn over to us and eventually make public thousands of pages of documents on the credibly-accused priests within the Diocese of Duluth,” said Mike Finnegan, an attorney representing victims.

He said the church also agreed to implement broad child protection measures to make sure children are better protected in the future.

1. Good

Interesting that the document release is part of the settlement. I wonder how many priests were just passed along to other locations. That seems to have been the pattern of the church.

2. This is a good start for those whom


were abused through the Decades. The info will shake the tree of truth too its roots. Especially the Range and Northwestern Wisconsin.
