“When the magnitude of victims claims against the Diocese of Buffalo under the Child Victims Act became clear several months ago, the Movement to Restore Trust concluded that a bankruptcy filing by the diocese was inevitable,” said John J. Hurley, Movement to Restore Trust Organizing Committee Member.  

“Resolving the claims of victims of sex abuse under the supervision of a federal bankruptcy judge is the only way to insure the prompt, fair and equitable treatment of claimants.  The bankruptcy court will provide a forum in which the legitimate interest of victims in openness and transparency can at last be assured.  We think that it will provide the essential starting point for the reconciliation, healing, and ultimately, reform of the Catholic Church in Buffalo that so many desire.”
