The Independent Compensation Program (“ICP”) for Victim-Survivors of Sexual Abuse of Minors by Priests of the participating California dioceses has announced the registration deadline has been extended to February 29, 2020.
On January 21st, Administrators Kenneth Feinberg and Camille Biros reported to the Independent Oversight Committee (“IOC”) that 427 people had already come forward to the ICP, with more registrations coming in daily. “In the last week, we have seen increased interest in the ICP and many more victims coming forward, and we have heard the requests for more time. We are pleased to provide survivors with an additional month to register new allegations of abuse by a priest of one of the participating dioceses in California so as many people as possible have the opportunity to participate,” Biros said. The dioceses of Fresno, Orange, Sacramento, San Bernardino, San Diego and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles are participating in the ICP.
