Jesuits to pay $16 million for dirty hands


The Jesuit order has agreed to a payout of $16 million to the families of nine children allegedly molested by Father Mark Falvey, who died 31 years ago. Via the LA Times:

“One of his victims, an 8-year-old girl, tried to commit suicide,” said the lawyer for the victims, Raymond P. Boucher.

“This guy brought a lifetime of misery to a group of young children. They’ll never get over it,” Boucher said.

Though the Archdiocese of L.A. was not involved in this settlement, the news two days after L.A.‘s Cardinal Roger Mahony announced clergy-abuse lawsuits may force the largest Catholic archdiocese in the country to sell its headquarters and other buildings.
