$30-million settlement for Deaf students abused by priests

The Roman Catholic religious order Clercs de Saint-Viateur agreed to pay 150 deaf victims of sexual abuse $20 million--and $10 million more will come from the Institut Raymond-Dewar (once known as  the Montreal Institute for the Deaf).  It's the "largest settlement for sexual assault in Quebec history" according to the Montreal Gazzette. The abuse "spanned from 1940 to 1982." Read the full story here.
