Bankruptcy judge: Abuse victims may seek funds from parishes as well as diocese
June 30, 2010
A bankruptcy judge has ruled that more than 140 alleged victims of clerical abuse may seek parish funds invested by the Diocese of Wilmington, even though the parishes are separate nonprofit corporations. The diocese, which declared bankruptcy last year and comprises the State of Delaware and parts of Maryland, has $45 million in assets and administers an additional $120 million in parish assets.
