CWN Editor's Note: The Los Angeles archdiocese has agreed to a record $8 million payment to settle a lawsuit brought by a woman who was sexually abused as a teenager by a high-school athletic director. The archdiocese—which has now paid out nearly $750 million in abuse settlements—was sued because the parochial school had received multiple earlier complaints about the athletic director, who is now serving a prison term.
