The Archdiocese of Hartford settled another claim of sexual abuse against one of its former priests, this time settling for an undisclosed amount with a victim who claimed he was abused as a teenager in his own home.
The lawsuit, filed in September 2014, was settled after limited discovery was completed, but before pleadings were closed and before a single deposition was taken. That spared the victim “extreme emotional distress and burden that would have come with being deposed and reliving his painful experiences,” according to a statement from the victim’s attorney, Ernest Teitell, a partner at Silver Golub & Teitell.
