Judge Orders Parties Involved in Archdiocese Bankruptcy Case to Return to Mediation

A judge has denied reorganization plans from the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis and the Creditor’s Committee.

The archdiocese originally filed its reorganization plan in its bankruptcy case in May 2016. The Creditor’s Committee also submitted a request the archdiocese’s assets be consolidated, which was denied.

In December 2016, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robert Kressel allowed both plans to be moved to a vote. A group of more than 400 clergy abuse victims rejected the reorganization plan.
