Victims approve settlement
Victims of clergy sexual abuse have approved of a plan for the Gallup Diocese to dole out millions of dollars in compensation.
The Albuquerque Journal reports that an attorney for 57 abuse survivors told a federal judge Tuesday that all had signed off on the plan.
Under the agreement, each claimant will receive roughly $350,000.
The Gallup Diocese is establishing a fund of between $21 million and $25 million for professional fees and settlements.
