ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A federal judge is ordering the Diocese of Gallup to mount an advertising campaign and post notices to alert the public about the process for filing claims in its bankruptcy case.

The order signed Friday by U.S. Bankruptcy Judge David Thuma also sets an Aug. 11 deadline for people who allege they were sexually abused by priests in the diocese to file claims in the bankruptcy case.

Diocese attorney Susan Boswell says the diocese plans to spend up to $40,000 for newspaper advertisements and television and radio spots.

According to the Albuquerque Journal (https://goo.gl/qfRGYp ), the advertising campaign will be accompanied by postings of notices in churches, Navajo Nation chapter houses and other sites.
