Wilmington Diocese Files For Bankruptcy On Eve Of Sex-Abuse Trials

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Wilmington filed for bankruptcy protection just hours before eight clergy sex-abuse trials were set to begin yesterday – the first wave in dozens of cases against its priests that, by diocesan estimates, could cost it $100 million to $500 million.

In 2007, the Delaware legislature enacted a special two-year moratorium on the statute of limitations, allowing adult victims of sex abuse to sue for assaults perpetrated even decades ago. By the time the moratorium closed last July, 142 plaintiffs had filed lawsuits against the Wilmington diocese, which comprises Delaware and nine counties in eastern Maryland.

142 plaintiffs.  Sick fuckers.

Thomas Neuberger, a Wilmington lawyer representing 88 plaintiffs against the diocese and two Catholic high schools, yesterday denounced the filing as a “fraudulent tactic” designed to hide the hierarchy’s “complicity in the sexual abuse of hundreds of Catholic children.”

But the Church is ready to take their ball and leave if D.C. votes on equal rights for gays?

Wilmington is the seventh Roman Catholic diocese in the United States to seek bankruptcy protection this decade in the face of massive numbers of sex-abuse lawsuits. The others are Davenport, Iowa; Fairbanks, Alaska; Portland, Ore.; San Diego; Spokane, Wash.; and Tucson, Ariz.

In those dioceses, cases of clergy sex abuse did proceed to trial. In Spokane and Fairbanks, the lawsuits were settled for an average of $400,000, according to James Stang, a partner in the Los Angeles law firm of Pachulski, Stang, Ziehl & Jones. In San Diego, the average payout was $1.4 million.

Stang, whose firm has worked on behalf of plaintiffs in six of the bankrupt dioceses, said a diocese might file for bankruptcy to “stop a public trial” that could reveal information it wants concealed.

Screw a public trial.  Burn their leaders at the stake.  Send in the Inquisitors and give them a taste of their own medicine.  In the interest of justice and fairness, I would volunteer.  I would use my invisible friend as a guide, though.  He has a very mean disposition at times…
