Stockton diocese to emerge from bankruptcy

January 17, 2017

The Diocese of Stockton, California will soon emerge from bankruptcy protection, after a court approved a plan for financial reorganization.

The Stockton diocese had filed for bankruptcy protection in January 2014; it was the 10th American diocese to take that step in the wake of the sex-abuse scandal.
