The Archdiocese of Milwaukee is hemorrhaging money on legal and professional fees as a result of its bankruptcy, it says in court documents filed Thursday, asking a judge to suspend those payments.

The archdiocese filed a motion asking U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Susan V. Kelley to allow it to suspend all payments to attorneys and consultants, except $125,000 for work on its plan of reorganization. And it would continue to pay its own attorneys to challenge sex-abuse claims with proceeds from its insurance carriers.
