Settlement Reached In Minnesota Catholic Diocese Bankruptcy

The National Catholic Reporter last week detailed a $210 million settlement with over 400 sexual abuse victims reached by the Diocese of St. Paul- Minneapolis in its bankruptcy reorganization.  $170 million will come from insurers, and $40 million will be paid by the archdiocese and parishes.  It is the largest settlement reached so far in any of the Catholic diocese bankruptcy cases around the country.
