Were You Sexually Abused By A Priest Or Employee Of The Archdiocese Of New Orleans? We Can Help.

The Archdiocese of New Orleans has filed for bankruptcy protection, and anyone sexually abused in the Archdiocese of New Orleans who has not already settled his or her case is entitled to file a claim. More than likely this will also include those sexually assaulted as adults and the estates of deceased victims.

The Archdiocese of New Orleans is the latest of several dozen dioceses and religious orders to file for bankruptcy protection due to the number of sexual abuse claims filed against it. Bankruptcy creates a way for the dioceses to control the financial impact of the cases against it by creating a “bar date” set by the bankruptcy court. Anyone who may have a claim against the Archdiocese of New Orleans, which usually includes anyone sexually abused as a minor child by a priest or employee of the Diocese, will have the opportunity to submit a claim and ask for compensation from the court. If you do not file a claim before the “bar date” set by the court, you will likely never be able to take action against the Archdiocese of New Orleans in the future, even if the Louisiana legislature passes laws that would otherwise allow your case to be filed in court.

A strict deadline will apply to the filing of all claims, so it is important that you act soon to protect your rights under the fund. If you miss this deadline, you may never be able to take action against the Archdiocese of New Orleans again. Contact us today at 954-641-2100 or send an email to find out your legal options.
