Today at 11:30 it is expected that a top official from the Diocese of Duluth will testify under oath regarding the Diocese of Duluth Bankruptcy filing. The Diocese filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in December. Judge Robert J. Kressel set a May 25, 2016 deadline for creditors, including survivors of childhood sexual abuse, to come forward confidentially and bring a claim in the Duluth Diocese bankruptcy case.
Courtroom 2 – 11:30AM
515 West 1st Street
Duluth, MN 55802
The bankruptcy deadline is the same date (May 25,2016) as the deadline for the Child Victims Act. All other survivors in the state must bring their claims by that date.
Nationally renowned priest abuse attorney Jeff Anderson’s website details instructions. There are a number of key points:
• You must file a claim by May 25.
• Your privacy and confidentiality can be protected.
• Filing your claim can help you and help protect children.
Please act now, because any further delay will result in loss of your right to make a claim
Abuse of children and the continued silence by the offenders needs to be prevented. If you suffered, saw, or suspected such events, it is important to know that there is help out there.
