    Judas offers an example

    The new average is $75,000. The old average was $155,000. This is unfair say they.
    O yes, very unfair. Good God. For those plaintiffs that still are Catholics, what might be the discussion at their Last Judgement?

    I think the most prudant action would be to donate any money left after lawyer fees to charity. What other action could possibly be offered? Certainly not real estate investment or a new Lexus.

    I am surprised that Judas can actually offer a lesson as to what to do with it.

    BOSTON — When the clergy sex abuse scandal erupted here four years ago, Bill Garrity was not among the more than 500 people who sued the archdiocese and settled claims in 2003.

    However, Garrity _ who said he was abused by a parish priest as a 12-year-old altar boy _ is among a group of about 200 alleged victims with new claims against the archdiocese.

    Lawyers for the current plaintiffs have denounced the archdiocese's $7.5 million offer as "demeaning" and say it treats them differently than the victims who participated in an $85 million global settlement in September 2003.

    The archdiocese's proposal would give alleged victims settlements ranging from $5,000 to $200,000, with $75,000 as the average. In 2003, the 554 plaintiffs received settlements ranging from $80,000 to $300,000 each, with an average of about $155,000.
