About 450 victims of priest sex-abuse will start voting in about 30 days on competing compensation plans proposed by the Catholic Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis and by attorneys representing abuse survivors. A federal bankruptcy judge approved the timetable Thursday. The court will take the vote by victims into consideration, but a final decision on compensation rests with the judge. The Archdiocese’s attorney says its plan, providing at least 155 million dollars, is the best settlement that could be reached with the church’s multiple insurance carriers. Attorneys with Anderson and Associates, representing the victims, say the archdiocese has not revealed all of its assets and many times that amount is potentially available to compensate victims of priest sex abuse.
