Diocese of Syracuse Files for Chapter 11 to Manage Legal Expenses and Facilitate Settlements with Abuse Survivors

Background Information:

In February of 2018, the Diocese of Syracuse announced the formation of the Syracuse Independent Reconciliation Compensation Program (IRCP) to pay out compensation for victims of sexual abuse by members of the Syracuse clergy. Merson Law represented many victims who attended the Diocese of Syracuse during the lifetime of the IRCP, which has since expired.

By May 1st of 2019, the Diocese of Syracuse had paid out nearly $11 million to 79 victims.

In February 2019, the New York State Senate passed the Child Victims Act, which opened up new opportunities for victims who had not filed through the IRCP to sue the Diocese of Syracuse for their abuse.

After “the financial impact of the Child Victims Act on the Diocese, as well as the economic downturn precipitated by the COVID-19 pandemic,” the Diocese of Syracuse opted to file Chapter 11 Bankruptcy, also known as Reorganization.

– Reverend Douglas J. Lucia, in his letter to the Diocese of Syracuse
