Church victims to get $210 million

The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis agreed to the settlement with 450 victims as part of its plan for bankruptcy reorganization, making it the second-largest U.S. payout in the priest sex abuse scandal. Victims’ attorney Jeff Anderson said the settlement includes accountability measures. The money, a total of $210,290,724, will go into a pot to pay survivors, with the amount for each survivor to be determined. Anderson said a formal reorganization plan will now be submitted to a bankruptcy judge for approval and then sent to the victims for a vote. He expects it to be approved.
