Claims Against Milwaukee Archdiocese Due Today


[with video]

MILWAUKEE — Alleged victims of clergy abuse have until today to file a claim against the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.

The archdiocese filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in January 2011, and the courts set today as the deadline for any new claims to be filed.

The archdiocese will be in court in Feb. 9 as bankruptcy proceedings move forward.

Archbishop Jerome Listecki said at the time of the bankruptcy filing that nearly $29 million had been spend to address more than 200 claims over the past 20 years.
