“The Catholic Diocese of Camden has reached a historic sex abuse settlement, agreeing to pay $87.5 million to more than 300 alleged childhood victims of clergy sexual abuse. The deal is said to be one of the largest settlements involving the Catholic Church in the United States. It sets up a trust requiring the diocese to pay into over a four-year period. Attorneys for the abuse victims say the average payment will be about $290,000 each for those who filed a claim.”
