Stockton to vote on spending $1.5M more on bankruptcy filings

STOCKTON, CA - Stockton City Council plans to vote Tuesday night on whether to approve spending an additional $1.5 million on bankruptcy filing.

City spokesperson Connie Cochran said this is the first time since the city entered bankruptcy court that the cost has increased.

Under the city's Pendency Plan, which was approved by the council on June 26 and filed with the court, the stated cost of $3.5 million was an initial estimate for the city's general fund bankruptcy expense.

Cochran said the city's bankruptcy is being challenged by creditors and the bankruptcy court judge ordered a new mediation between the parties, which is driving up the bankruptcy cost.

The city anticipates the ordered new mediation, run by an Oregon bankruptcy judge Elizabeth Perris, will save the city money in the long run, Cochran said.


Sex abuse suit alleges conspiracy on part of Stockton diocese

CALAVERAS COUNTY, CA - A 22-year-old former altar boy has filed a civil complaint against the Diocese of Stockton, charging the diocese knew a now-defrocked priest had been the subject of other molestation allegations and yet it still placed the priest in a position of interaction with minors as pastor of St. Andrew's Parish in San Andreas.

The complaint accuses the diocese, ex-pastor Father Michael Kelly, Bishop Steven Blaire and Monsignor Richard Ryan of 10 charges, including sexual battery, fraud and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

The complaint alleges the diocese ignored a number of sexual misconduct allegations against Kelly as well as a 1999 psychological evaluation in which a licensed psychologist recommended the pastor "not minister to children alone or families in which there are children" because of "underlying or latent pedophilic elements".
