The Archdiocese of Seattle, Washington, has reached an agreement to pay $12.1 million to settle sex-abuse suits brought by 30 men.
The plaintiffs report that they suffered abuse in schools that were administered by the Christian Brothers, under the auspices of the archdiocese. The Christian Brothers have declared bankruptcy.
