Archdiocese offers $130M to abuse victims

November 18, 2016

The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, which filed for bankruptcy in 2015, has amended its reorganization plan, doubling its proposed fund to compensate over 400 abuse victims from $65 million to $130 million.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that “the increase comes primarily from new insurance settlements with the archdiocese,” and that the archdiocese itself would contribute $13 million.

Victims’ attorneys criticized the archdiocese’s offer as insufficient. A bankruptcy court will consider the plan in December.
