The Yakima Herald-Republic reports the diocese has agreed to pay $40,000 to a woman who says she was sexually abused by three Jesuit priests during the 1970s.
The woman contended that the Revs. Frank Duffy, John Morse and James Poole abused her when she was between the ages of 8 and 12.
In the second lawsuit, the plaintiff and the Yakima Diocese have agreed in principle to a settlement of $75,000. The agreement has not yet been signed.
The victim alleged that the Rev. Ernest Dale Calhoun abused him beginning in 1977 when the victim was 12 and ending when he was 17.
