Rob Kugler Quoted on Catholic Diocese Bankruptcy Cases in Bloomberg Businessweek

In the News

Partner Rob Kugler was quoted recently in Bloomberg Businessweek on the ongoing bankruptcy cases brought by the Catholic Church in response to the sexual abuse of minors by Catholic clergy.

In the article, Rob describes the Church rationale behind bankruptcies as a mechanism for dealing with its liability for the sexual abuse of minors. The article addresses the decisions made by the Church to reclassify and shelter their assets in an effort to decrease the amount of money available to clergy abuse victims.

Rob is a leader in the representation of survivors of sexual abuse in enforcing their claims in bankruptcy. Rob secured the largest ever recovery in a Catholic diocese bankruptcy in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis case ($210 million). Additionally, Rob has represented survivor committees in the bankruptcy cases of the Crosier Order, the Diocese of Duluth, the Diocese of New Ulm, the Diocese of Winona/Rochester and the Archdiocese of Agaña (Guam).
