Diocese refiles suit against bankruptcy attorneys
January 20, 2014
The Diocese of Spokane, which filed for bankruptcy protection in 2004, has refiled its malpractice lawsuit against its former bankruptcy attorneys, the Spokane Spokesman-Review reported.
In 2012, Bishop Blase Cupich said that the law firm “failed to explore other means of ending the abuse scandal” and that the bankruptcy plan crafted by the lawyers “failed to adequately fund the risk of new claims.” The diocese’s 2012 lawsuit against the firm, Paine Hamblen, was dismissed on a technicality.
