Catholic Diocese of Tucson files revised bankruptcy documents


TUCSON, Ariz. Three Yuma brothers who say they were repeatedly raped by a priest will each receive at least 600-thousand dollars.

The cash payout is outlined in revised bankruptcy documents filed by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Tucson.

The brothers and other victims of clergy sexual abuse who have valid claims against the diocese could be paid from a total pot of more than 20 (m) million dollars.

The amended statement and Chapter eleven plan were filed late Thursday in federal court.

Exactly how many plaintiffs will be dividing the total pot of money remains unclear.
