Appeals court upholds rulings in Milwaukee archdiocese bankruptcy case
October 30, 2012
A federal appeals court has upheld key rulings in the bankruptcy case of the Milwaukee archdiocese, allowing two sex-abuse victims to pursue their claims against the archdiocese, while dismissing the case of a 3rd victim.
Judge Rudolph Randa dismissed the case of one victim who has already collected a $100,000 settlement from the Church. That decision could allow the archdiocese to challenge the claims of 90 other victims who have already received settlements.
However the judge allowed two other victims to move forward with their cases, despite the argument of the archdiocese that the victims should have filed their claims years earlier.
