MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- It's back to bankruptcy court for the Milwaukee Archdiocese and victims of sexual abuse, after failing to reach a settlement.
The archdiocese and its creditors have been in court-ordered mediation since July 20.
Most of the creditors are victims or alleged victims of sexual abuse by clergy or church workers.
Since the talks have failed, victims' attorney Jeffrey Anderson says the creditors would now move to force disclosure of documents under court seal.
Archbishop Jerome Listecki's chief of staff tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel the archdiocese remains hopeful a settlement might eventually be reached.
The archdiocese filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in January 2011 to deal with sex abuse claims.
