SEXUAL ASSAULT a class of 243 alleged victims of sexual molestation by employees of the Archdiocese of Louisville, Ky., between 1957 and 1991 settled their lawsuit for $25.7 million on June 10. Also a defendant in the class action was Our Lady of Consolation Province, a Franciscan church named in 19 of the original lawsuits. It will contribute to the settlement. The plaintiffs claimed that the defendants breached their duty to report suspected sexual abuse. Plaintiffs’ attorney Hans Poppe said that the settlement is the largest paid by an archdiocese without an insurance contribution, the largest paid by an archdiocese prior to a jury verdict and the second largest in the scandal’s history.
