In Delaware, the Church bankruptcy will take its toll on Diocesan employees, laity and school children. Blame belongs with the hierarchy, who thought they were above accountability. Victims find relief in non-monetary judgments that will protect other children, specifically the release of records.
“As it pays for the past, diocese tries to move on,” by Beth Miller, The News Journal, August 7, 2011
Excerpt from linked article:
“If you look at what Delaware has been through — as excruciating as it is — there’s nothing that is not either known or will be known when more documents are released,” Holman, the attorney and survivor, said. “It’s the exact opposite [in Philadelphia]. There’s a complete firewall of information and no law that will force a different result.””Is that better for the Philadelphia church? In some ways. But I think Wilmington is light years ahead.”
