MILWAUKEE (AP) — No deal has been reached after two days of mediation in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee’s bankruptcy case.

Attorneys for the archdiocese, victims of clergy sexual abuse and others involved in the case met Monday and Tuesday in Minneapolis to try to come up with a settlement.

Archdiocese spokesman Jerry Topczewski said Wednesday no deal was reached but two more days of mediation are scheduled for Sept. 22 and 23.

Topczewski says mediation is confidential and he can’t discuss details but archdiocese officials remain optimistic.

The archdiocese filed for bankruptcy in 2011, saying it wouldn’t have the money to pay if it lost lawsuits filed by victims of clergy sexual abuse. Hundreds of victims then filed claims in bankruptcy court.
