MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Victims of clergy sex abuse and a group of priests are urging other Milwaukee area victims to file for restitution in federal bankruptcy court before a Feb. 1 deadline.
They took out a full-page ad in Tuesday's Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The Archdiocese of Milwaukee filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in January and says it has less than $10 million available to pay claims.
As of late November, about 100 people had filed claims.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/tfOlf0 ) four priests have been meeting quietly for about a year with victims, independent of the archdiocese.
At a news conference Tuesday, Father James Connell said a sense of hope emerged as the priests and victims listened to one another.
