Christian Brothers of North America file for bankruptcy
April 29, 2011
Citing costs associated with the sexual abuse scandal, the North American branch of the Congregation of Christian Brothers has filed for bankruptcy.
“We had hoped that we could have partnered with the Christian Brothers to settle claims,” said an attorney for the Archdiocese of Seattle, where much of the abuse is alleged to have occurred. “What this means is that victims now have to deal with this out of bankruptcy court.”
