CWN Editor's Note: In what is described as “the single largest settlement received by an individual against a religious organization,” two California dioceses have settled with a plaintiff who alleged abuse by two notorious priests, Father Eleuterio Ramos (who died in 2004) and Father Siegfried Widera (who died in 2003).

The Diocese of Orange will contribute $9.5 million to the settlement; the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, $500,000.
