Parish, Catholic school lawyer files motion to intervene in Church bankruptcy case


January 27, 2020

Attorney Vincent Camacho has filed a motion to intervene in the ongoing Archdiocese of Agana bankruptcy case. He represents 33 Catholic parishes and schools. As we reported the Archdiocese submitted its bankruptcy reorganization plan which is offering $21 million to settle its more than 200 clergy sex abuse lawsuits.

There is however a separate lawsuit pending against the church to included local Catholic schools and parishes to increase the settlement fund. Although the church opposes this, the Intervenors argue that the church is not in a position to fully understand each parish or school’s finances or operating structures and “thus cannot properly make all of the Intervenor’s arguments.” Such information will permit a more complete disclosure of necessary facts for the court to make a proper determination.
