Jesuits settle abuse claims for $166 million

SEATTLE (AP) — Jesuits in the Pacific Northwest have agreed to pay $166.1 million to hundreds of people who were abused at the Catholic order’s schools around the region.

The settlement also asks the order to provide a written apology to the victims and to share documents with them such as their personal medical records.

The Oregon Province of the Society of Jesus runs schools in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana and Alaska. The claims are from victims who were students at schools in all five states.

The province had previously settled another 200 claims. Then the organization filed for bankruptcy, claiming the payments depleted their treasury. But victims argued the province remained wealthy because it controls and owns Gonzaga University, Gonzaga Preparatory School, Seattle University and other schools and properties.
