The Diocese of Great Falls-Billings is just the latest to hide behind bankruptcy protection to avoid potentially embarrassing and expensive child sex abuse and cover-up civil trials.
These filings are seldom about money. Instead, church officials filed for federal protection on the eve of a July trial to ensure that victims and the general public never know the true extent of sex abuse and cover-up throughout eastern Montana.
