In the wake of a recent court decision and its $8.4 million judgment, of which the Diocese of Duluth has been found responsible for $4.8 million, we have today filed on an emergency basis for bankruptcy protection in order to reorganize under Chapter 11. The necessity of this decision became clear after other efforts to reach a resolution that would assist all abuse victims and protect the Church’s mission had proved, as yet, unsuccessful. The Diocese will continue those good faith efforts during the bankruptcy process.
Father James Bissonette, vicar general of the Diocese, issued the following statement on behalf of the Diocese:

To whom it may concern:
As you may or may not know, the above-referenced entities (collectively, the "Crosiers") have filed Chapter 11 reorganization case. On August 25, 2017, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Minnesota entered an important Order in the reorganization cases of the Crosiers.
The Order requires persons holding claims for compensation against the Crosiers to submit such claims by December 15, 2017. You are receiving this letter because one or more persons associated with the Crosiers against whom there is a credible claim for sexual abuse served at one time in your Diocese/Parish/Mission/School. The information in the enclosed Posted Notice explains the requirement to submit claims.
I am writing to ask that you assist me, and any people who worship and live in and around your community who may have claims against the Crosiers, by posting the enclosed Posted Notice on any public notice or message board for continuous display from the time of receipt until December 15, 2017. Additionally, or alternatively, I ask that you place the Posted Notice on the website of your Diocese/Parish/Mission/School from the time of receipt until December 15, 2017. Any and all efforts to assist in getting notice to the broadest number of people possible will be greatly appreciated.
If you need additional copies or a digital file of the Posted Notice, please contact me. Thank you for your kind assistance.
