Christian Brothers in US pay $16.5 million to settle abuse claims
Catholic World News - May 24, 2013
The Christian Brothers in the US have agreed to pay $16.5 million to settle the claims of plaintiffs in sex-abuse cases.
The Christian Brothers filed for bankruptcy protection in 2011, anticipating large claims from sex-abuse victims. The $16.5 million settlement, which was approved by the bankruptcy court, will be divided among more than 400 people who report that they were molested by members of the religious order.
