James Stang was featured in Jonathan Randles’ and Tom Corrigan’s Wall Street Journal article “Veteran of Catholic Chapter 11s Represents Weinstein Victims.”

“For more than a decade, the 62-year-old lawyer has wrangled with the Catholic Church on behalf of sexual abuse victims as ballooning abuse-related liabilities have driven dioceses across the U.S. into bankruptcy.”

“Mr. Stang’s firm, Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones, is representing a committee of Weinstein Co.’s unsecured creditors, which has broad power to scrutinize the studio and its finances.”

“Mr. Stang has represented about 2,500 victims with sexual-abuse claims against the Catholic Church in a dozen bankruptcy cases, court papers show. Eighteen Catholic dioceses and religious orders have sought court protection to address mounting legal trouble tied to past abuse, much of which occurred decades ago.”
