Boston settlement talks

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | May 19, 2003

Suppose you put your house on the market for $125,000, and I made an offer to purchase it at $25,000. Would you say we were close to an agreement? Would you say I was a motivated buyer?

Right. And now you understand why lawyers for sex-abuse victims don't think the Boston archdiocese is ready for an out-of-court solution. They're gearing up for a trial that could make things even uglier than they already are.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
