NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -Monday, March 1 is the deadline for victims of church sex abuse related to the Archdiocese of New Orleans, its parishes, schools, or a related ministry to file a claim.

Anyone wanting to report sexual abuse that happened before May 1 2020 by a member of clergy must file that claim by 5 p.m today.

Individuals whose claims are approved may receive compensation for the claim. Individuals who do not file a timely claim may lose legal rights that may exist against the Archdiocese of New Orleans.

This comes after the Roman Catholic Church of the Archdiocese of New Orleans filed for Chapter 11 reorganization under the United States Bankruptcy code in May of last year.
