Jim Stang’s Archdiocese of Santa Fe Church Abuse Case Covered in Associated Press, Various Outlets

December 11, 2020

On December 7, 2020, a hearing took place in the chapter 11 reorganization of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe to determine whether three lawsuits against the archdiocese should temporarily be halted. New Mexico’s largest archdiocese claims that victims of clergy sexual abuse seek to “eliminate the physical presence of the church” through these suits, which allege that the archdiocese fraudulently transferred hundreds of millions of dollars before its filing in order to avoid a larger settlement with the victims.

In response to this accusation, committee counsel James Stang of Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones asserted that the inquiry into church holdings is merely an effort to resolve the bankruptcy and provide proper restitution to the clergy’s victims.

“The suggestion that we are the enemies of this archdiocese is not constructive,” said Mr. Stang. “But more importantly, it’s not true.”

The hearing was covered by the Associated Press, among others. The full article can be found here.
