Baltimore Archdiocese says it will file for bankruptcy before new law on abuse lawsuits takes effect

  • The Archdiocese of Baltimore has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization as a way to compensate abuse survivors, as the new state law will remove the statute of limitations on child sex abuse charges.
  • The filing is necessary to prevent the depletion of resources on litigation, which would leave most victims without compensation and potentially ending important ministries in Maryland.
  • Maryland will end the statute of limitations for civil lawsuits on child sexual abuse, allowing victims to sue institutions. Lawsuits will be put on hold until the Supreme Court decides on the law's constitutionality.
