Judge OKs $40M settlement with Duluth diocese

October 21, 2019

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — A federal judge has approved a $40 million settlement between the Diocese of Duluth and dozens of people who say they were abused as children by priests.

Judge Robert Kressel signed off on the settlement Monday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court. The diocese filed for bankruptcy in 2015 and reached the settlement in May.

The agreement also calls for the diocese to open its files on more than three dozen priests who were credibly accused of abuse and develop procedures to ensure children will be protected.

The Star Tribune reports that Duluth Bishop Paul Sirba apologized and expressed “sincere sorrow.”

1. Settlements are good in their own way but I want to see indictments, convictions and lengthy

prison terms for the perpetrators and their conspirators.
