CWN Editor's Note: The Archdiocese of Chicago has agreed to settle abuse cases against five clerics, with a payment of $800,000 to the complainants.

The cases include an abuse charge against Father George Clements, the noted civil-right activist, who in 1980 became the first American Catholic priest to adopt a child. Father Clements, who would go on to adopt three other children, died in 2019.
