Another New York diocese weighs bankruptcy option
June 16, 2020
CWN Editor's Note: The Diocese of Rockville Centre, New York, is considering a bankruptcy filing, a spokesman has revealed. The diocese has asked a court for a temporary stay in sex-abuse cases, saying that the sheer number of lawsuits, and the cost of litigation, could exhaust the funds that might be available to plaintiffs. Two other New York dioceses—Buffalo and Rochester—have filed for bankruptcy protection in the past year. In total, 23 American dioceses have entered bankruptcy in the wake of the sex-abuse scandal.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
