There’s only one week left for victims to file sexual assault claims against the Archdiocese of Santa Fe.

According to the Santa Fe New Mexican, attorneys say more than 200 people have already filled out their claims against the church. In December, the archdiocese filed for bankruptcy to cover the growing number of lawsuits alleging child sexual abuse by priests.

The deadline for filing abuse claims is June 17 at 5 p.m.
