The Creditors’ Committee (which includes survivors of alleged abuse) has filed a motion to dismiss the Archdiocese of New Orleans bankruptcy. The Committee says that the bankruptcy was filed “in bad faith” because the intent was not to reorganize or respond to a financial crisis (or any other valid reorganizational purpose), but instead to gain a litigation advantage by blocking their lawsuits.
Here is an article about this filed motion by David Hammer in The Advocate, “Abuse Victims Want Plan Tossed.”
