$123M settlement approved in Del. child abuse case

DOVER, Del. (AP) — A judge has approved a $123 million settlement in a class-action lawsuit filed on behalf of young children who were sexually abused by former Delaware pediatrician Earl Bradley.

New Castle County Superior Court Judge Joseph Slights III issued his ruling today after holding a hearing last week.

The settlement resolves claims against a southern Delaware hospital where Bradley had physician privileges, the Medical Society of Delaware, and five physicians accused by the plaintiffs of not reporting suspicions about Bradley to authorities.

The 59-year-old Bradley is serving 14 life sentences for child rape. He was convicted last year by a judge who viewed more than 13 hours of homemade videos showing sex crimes against more than 80 victims.
