Parishes' assets targeted in archdiocese bankruptcy case

Annysa Johnson reports in today's Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that in our Archdiocese's bankruptcy,
"Lawyers for sexual abuse victims and other creditors in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee bankruptcy case telegraphed Thursday they intend to go after individual parish assets and proceeds from the archdiocese's $105 million Faith in Our Future campaign."
That is, were these entities created, operated, or funded in ways consistent with the requirements for them to be treated as separate legal entities from our Archdiocese.

Our pastor must be in the reporter's rolodex.
"'Right now, there's a fair amount of sympathy for victims. But that could evaporate if they become intent on getting the parishes involved,' said Father Alan Jurkus of St. Alphonsus Catholic Church in Greendale."
Which seems to assume the victims have nothing coming. Otherwise wouldn't James 2:15-16 apply?
