The Diocese of Stockton, California will soon emerge from bankruptcy protection, after a court approved a plan for financial reorganization.
The plan, which provides $15 million to victims of sexual abuse, was
given “almost unanimous” approval by creditors, including abuse victims,
the diocese reports.
The Stockton diocese had filed for bankruptcy protection in January
2014; it was the 10th American diocese to take that step in the wake of
the sex-abuse scandal.
