MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A federal judge has declined to include parishes and other church properties among assets in the bankruptcy case of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis.

U.S. bankruptcy judge Robert Kressel ruled Thursday on the request by a committee representing clergy abuse victims.

That committee wanted to consolidate the assets of various entities in the Archdiocese, which would have meant more money available to pay victims claims.
