MILWAUKEE - The list of creditors for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee includes those you might expect to find in a bankruptcy case — a bank, pension funds and a retirees' health care plan.
It also includes a priest removed from the priesthood amid allegations of child sexual abuse.
The archdiocese filed for bankruptcy in 2011, saying it wouldn't have enough money if lawsuits filed by sexual abuse victims went against it. Hundreds of victims also filed claims.
The claim filed by Marvin Knighton stands out because he was acquitted by a jury. But the church still removed him from the priesthood, saying two of three allegations against him had merit.
Knighton is seeking back pay of $450,000.
He declined to comment when reached by telephone in Arizona.
