A retired Milwaukee priest is asking the FBI to investigate how the Milwaukee Archdiocesan Cemetery Trust Fund spent $7.8 million over four years.
Judge Susan V. Kelley found no evidence supporting the contention that the archdiocese knowingly allowed abusers to work in parishes or other settings where they found additional victims.
One of the claimants in the bankruptcy described the proposed settlement as "a Christmas gift for lawyers" and said it likely would not be approved by the committee of creditors.
An open letter to Pope Francis asks for an investigation into misconduct in the bankruptcy action taken by the Milwaukee archdiocese.
For 30 years, the Milwaukee archdiocese has provided therapy for abuse victims. But survivors are unhappy with how therapy will be handled under the new plan.
