Victims of alleged child sexual abuse by clergy are asking a judge to throw out the Archdiocese of New Orleans' bankruptcy case.
The victims say the church filed for the legal protection in "bad faith" as a way to block their lawsuits rather than for a legitimate financial need.
According to reports, at least 34 abuse lawsuits have been halted due to the local Catholic Church's decision to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection back on May 1st.
In response to the motion, the Archdiocese said Monday that its filing for bankruptcy protection is on firm legal ground.
