Minnesota Parishes Want Archdiocese to Pay Abuse Defense Costs

Dozens of parishes in the Twin Cities want the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis to pay their costs for settling clergy abuse claims.

About 120 parishes want the archdiocese to reimburse them for paying too much into church insurance plans. They also want compensation for costs to resolve sex abuse claims against priests the archdiocese assigned to parishes.

Creditors are required to file their claims against the archdiocese by Aug. 3 in the bankruptcy case. Minnesota Public Radio News reports the parish filings have not place a monetary value on claims.

More than 160 people alleging sex abuse by clergy members have filed claims against the archdiocese.
