Archdiocese of St. Paul & Minneapolis Bankruptcy Settlement
Bankruptcy Court Judge Robert Kressel approved a $210 million settlement against the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. The lawsuit was filed by victims of sexual abuse by the clergy.
The Archdiocese had filed for bankruptcy after the Minnesota Legislature increased the time for victims of sexual abuse from the clergy could seek damages with a law known as the Minnesota Child Victims Act.
So far, fifteen U.S. dioceses and archdioceses have filed for bankruptcy due to sexual abuse claims. This settlement is the largest settlement reached through bankruptcy process.
