Minnesota Judge Shows Disclosure Statement Wisdom

The case for The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, No. 15-30125 (Bankr. D. Minn.) has been an extremely contentious one.   The Debtor and the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors have different ideas on how to compensate sexual abuse claims and have submitted competing plans.    Not surprisingly, both parties objected to the other's disclosure statement.    The orders entered by Judge Robert Kressel show remarkable wisdom about how the disclosure statement process works in the real world.
