CWN Editor's Note: “You may have read or heard about a California state law which opened a three-year window for individuals to bring otherwise barred or expired claims for sexual abuse suffered as a child,” Bishop Michael Barber, SJ, wrote in a letter to the faithful.

“Since the closing of the filing window on December 31, 2022, we have been informed there may be approximately 330 lawsuits filed against our diocese ... I want to let you know the Diocese is giving strong consideration to filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.”
