Abuse victims demand records from Gallup diocese as part of bankruptcy settlement
March 07, 2016
A lawyer representing sex-abuse victims has said that his clients will not approve a settlement with the Diocese of Gallup, New Mexico, until the diocese releases records of accused priests.
The Gallup diocese is now in bankruptcy proceedings, and has told the court that it will file a reorganization plan shortly. But attorney Robert Pastor says that the victims will not consent to a settlement until the records are released. That stand could cause a delay in the completion of the bankruptcy process.
