Compensation Still in Dispute Among Milwaukee Archdiocese Victims

August 11, 2015

There's a new dispute over how many victims of priest sex abuse should be compensated in the settlement of the Milwaukee Archdiocese bankruptcy case.

The 10-county Catholic church has said that 157 people would not get any money from a $21 million settlement announced last week. But the creditors' committee said only 84 victims should be omitted -- those who received earlier cash payments from the archdiocese.

Church attorney Frank LoCoco says the church is negotiating with attorneys for the creditors, to determine how their clients will be treated. He says some of the victims on the church's list would eventually get compensated.
