Bankruptcy threatens lay workers' pensions

Delaware's The News Journal reports that the bankruptcy of the Wilmington, Del., diocese -- brought on by a law suit over sex abuse by clergy -- is threatening the pensions of some 2,000 lay employees of the diocese, including teachers, cafeteria workers, housekeepers and maintenance workers.

The article says:

The lay employees are fearful that the official committee representing the unsecured creditors has interests that are in conflict with the workers'. Currently, the committee consists of seven people who are all survivors of sexual abuse.
