Let's say you ran a small business. You were doing OK until a crooked employee robbed you and cheated your customers, bringing on an avalanche of lawsuits that drove you into bankruptcy. Now, with more debts than money to pay, you have to make some tough decisions. Should you pay the honest vendors who gave you fair value? Or should you pay the back wages still due to that crooked employee who was responsible for your predicament?
Gee. Tough questions. But you're not alone in your predicament:
Wilmington, DE (AP) - The Catholic Diocese of Wilmington has withdrawn a motion in bankruptcy court for permission to pay retirement benefits to six pedophile priests.
The diocese said in a court filing Thursday that it has reached an agreement with unsecured creditors and abuse survivors who opposed the motion, ending the need for a hearing next week.
Good thinking, guys. Got that one right.
