Sexual Abuse Scorecard

It’s been a while since we checked in on the Catholic Church’s sexual abuse scandal, so let’s get back up to speed.

Please match the diocese with the recent abuse scandal developments.

1) Spokane, Wash.
2) Covington, Ky.
3) Los Angeles

A) A judge here approved the dioceses’ $85 million offer to settle sexual abuse claims by 382 victims.
B) The Cardinal here has gone to the U.S. Supreme Court in an effort to keep from turning over priest personnel files as part of a grand jury investigation into church sexual abuse.
C) The diocese here has offered $45.7 million to settle the claims of 75 people who claim to have been molested by priests.


1) C: The Spokane diocese offered a $45.7 million settlement.
2) A: The Covington dioceses $85 million settlement offer was just approved.
3) B: And in Los Angeles, Cardinal Roger Mahoney is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to block a subpoena by the Los Angeles District Attorney to look into the Church’s files on its pedophile priests.
