Diocese move to dismiss St. Clare’s pension lawsuit denied

The state Supreme Court has denied the request from the Albany Roman Catholic Diocese to dismiss the St. Clare’s Hospital pension controversy case.

Pension holders sued the diocese, trying to recover pension funds from a defunct system.

St. Clare’s advocate Mary Hartshorne says she is thrilled at the ruling, and thanked their attorneys from AARP, who argued the case before the high court.

Hartshorne says now their case can move forward in the courts.
