Diocese of Rockville Centre Files for Chapter 11
On October 1, 2020, The Roman Catholic Diocese of Rockville Centre, New York (the “Debtor”) filed a petition in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York seeking relief under chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code. The Debtor’s Chapter 11 Case is pending before the Honorable Judge Shelley C. Chapman under Case No. 20-12345.
The filing is necessary to manage litigation expenses, address disputes with the Diocese’s insurers and facilitate settlements with abuse survivors who brought lawsuits under the Child Victims Act.
In order to qualify, you may need an Independent Reconciliation and Reparations Program Lawyer, also known as an IRRP Lawyer or IRRP Attorney.

Diocese of Rockville Centre Files for Chapter 11 to Manage Legal Expenses and Facilitate Settlements with Abuse Survivors
In 2003, the DRVC created the Office for the Protection of Children and Young People to oversee implementation and compliance with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Charter for Protection of Children and Young People and the Essential Norms promulgated by the U.S. Bishops in June 2002.
The Office also ensures the protection and safety of children by enforcing protocols for reporting and investigating alleged incidents of abuse. Additionally, in 2017, the DRVC instituted its Independent Reconciliation and Compensation Program (the “IRCP”) to provide abuse survivors a confidential avenue for being heard and the hope of some measure of reconciliation and compensation based on an independent review by nationally recognized fund administrators.
The IRCP continued up until the filing. During that time, the IRCP compensated approximately 350 survivors in amounts totaling more than $62 million. Participation in the IRCP had been completely voluntary.
