US Sex Scandal Payouts Top $1B

The Diocese of Oakland agreed recently to pay an average of more than $1M each to settle 56 cases of sexual abuse of children by priests from 1962 to 1985. There are approximately 50 cases still open in northern California. In a related story, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles has issued an update that notes there are more than 550 cases pending against it.
