Archdiocese of New Orleans Files for Bankruptcy

by Frank E. Lamothe, III

The Archdiocese of New Orleans has filed for bankruptcy today in federal court.

Here is today’s The New Orleans Advocate article by reporter Ramon Antonio Vargas: “Archdiocese of New Orleans files bankruptcy, records show; here’s what’s next. The New Orleans diocese “joins more than two dozen other dioceses and Catholic religious orders across the U.S. that have sought financial protection from creditors since the clergy-abuse scandal boiled over in 2002.”

We regret that the decision of the Archdiocese of New Orleans to file for bankruptcy will impact the claims of clergy abuse survivors. Lamothe Law Firm will continue to pursue all avenues of justice for its clients.
