Prof. Soper Speaks on MPR on Archdiocese Bankruptcy

Professor Christopher Soper spoke on Minnesota Public Radio about the claims resolution process underway in the Twin Cities' Archdiocese bankruptcy. He said the church will need to evaluate the 407 abuse claims filed against it to determine how much each claim is worth, which depends on the severity of the abuse and the culpability of the church. He also spoke about other next steps in the bankruptcy proceeding, including obtaining funding for the claimants from the parishes, insurance companies, and the Archdiocese itself.
