San Diego Catholic Diocese Bankruptcy over
Judge Louise DeCarl Adler dismissed the San Diego Catholic diocese bankruptcy case on November 1, 2007 at the request of the diocese. According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, she intended to grant the motion without comment until she received a packet from her "former parish" apparently requesting a contribution to help pay the settlements. She said the financial information in the packet was "disingenuous" and the less than candid. She said again that the diocese should not have filed bankruptcy in the first place. It has plenty of property to sell to pay the claims in full in her opinion. According to the article, a diocese spokesman stood by the disclosure and said it was not disingenuous.
The Union-Tribune has a huge archive of documents on its website relating to the bankruptcy case including the 176 page report filed by Todd Neilsen on July 30, 2007. The report analyzes in great detail the financial condition of the San Diego diocese. The Union-Tribune website can be accessed here.
