MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Hundreds of victims of clergy sexual abuse will likely vote this month on a reorganization plan for the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis that will compensate them for the abuse.
According to a timetable laid out Thursday at a federal bankruptcy court hearing, some 450 victims will begin to vote Aug. 21, pending judicial approval. Minnesota Public Radio News says if the plan is endorsed it would go to the judge overseeing the bankruptcy in late September. Then it would be determined how much money each victim gets.READ MORE: Target No Longer Requiring Face Coverings For Fully Vaccinated Guests, Staff Members
The tentative settlement reached in May provides about $210 million to compensate abuse victims. All victims would receive at least $50,000, with greater compensation depending on the nature, duration and effects of the abuse suffered.READ MORE: Motorcyclist Fatally Thrown From Bike Trying To Avoid Crash In I-694
