The Supreme Court is to announce its judgement today after the Middlesbrough Roman Catholic Diocese appealed to overturn a ruling that it is responsible for an £8m compensation claim by child abuse victims.
The challenge relates to claims from 170 men who allege they were sexually and physically abused at the St Williams Children's Home in Market Weighton between 1960 and 1992.
In December 2003, James Redmond Carragher, the former principal of the home was jailed for 14 years after he was found guilty of sexual offences against 22 boys.
