The Diocese of Camden claims the filing is necessary to manage litigation expenses, especially after suffering financially from the COVID-19 pandemic. Bishop Dennis Sullivan, in an address to the public on the Diocese’s official website, explains, “If it were just the pandemic, or just the costs of the Victims Compensation Program, we could likely weather the financial impact; however, the combination of these factors has made that impracticable.”
The Victims Compensation Program sought to compensate victims of sexual abuse by members of the Camden Diocese, however the church’s bankruptcy filing halted any payments until further notice.
Still, many lawyers, including those at Merson Law, see this bankruptcy as an opportunity to expedite the process of compensating victims of sexual abuse.
In order to take advantage of this opportunity, you may need an Independent Reconciliation and Reparations Program Lawyer, also known as an IRRP Lawyer or IRRP Attorney. An attorney can fight for your rights and navigate the new legal obstacles caused by the bankruptcy filing.
