  Law.com - 3rd Circuit Rejects RICO Claim Against Archdiocese
Archdiocese of Philadelphia, a unanimous three-judge panel of the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court's dismissal of the suit on the grounds that the plaintiffs cannot show they suffered a RICO-style injury that was caused by the cover-up.
Plaintiffs attorney Stewart J. Eisenberg of Eisenberg Rothweiler Winkler Eisenberg & Jeck argued in the appeal that the archdiocese engaged in a large-scale cover-up of alleged child abuse perpetrated by priests.
Eisenberg argued that the archdiocese should be held responsible under RICO because the alleged cover-up deprived the plaintiffs of the rights they would have had in personal injury suits against the church.

Concerned that the Archdiocese of Boston may be suggesting that the attorney general's office is an enforcer of church financial policies, Attorney General Thomas F. Reilly is demanding that archdiocesan officials not attribute to his office any decision to audit or discipline priests.

This year, the archdiocese has audited 20 parishes, and several priests have told the Globe that the archdiocese has been threatening pastors with prosecution for alleged violations of church financial policies that may or may not be violations of civil law.

In 1996, the one Archdiocese was split by the Ecumenical Patriarchate, dividing the administration of the two continents into four parts (America, Canada, Central America, and South America) and leaving only the territory of the United States for the Archdiocese of America.
In 2004, 35 plaintiffs unsuccessfully sued Archbishop Demetrios and the Greek Archdiocese in an attempt to force it to invalidate the 2003 charter granted by Constantinople; their lawsuit stated that the Greek hierarchy had imposed the rewritten charter without approval from delegates at the national Clergy-Laity Congress, violating the terms of the 1978 charter.
The Archdiocese receives within its ranks and under its spiritual aegis and pastoral care Orthodox Christians, who either as individuals or as organized groups in Metropolises and Parishes have voluntarily come to it and which acknowledge the ecclesiastical and canonical jurisdiction of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

 Fewer churches, but Mass attendance in Boston Archdiocese rises - Boston.com
The steady attendance through the closings "absolutely" was a validation of the archdiocese's closing plan, said Kathleen Heck, who worked for the archdiocese to assist the transition between closed parishes and the parishes that accepted the transferring parishioners.
The archdiocese's statistics on Mass attendance and population are not perfectly comparable, year to year, because of the methods used to collect the numbers.
She added that the drop since 2003 can be partly explained by the fact Catholics at closed parishes were not automatically registered at the church where their old parish merged.
