Officials with the Los Angeles Archdiocese declined to comment on the terms of the settlement. But in a statement church officials noted that one of the accused priests was at a parish that was under the control of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles until the Diocese of Orange was formed in 1976. The abuse occurred later, church officials added, when the parish was no longer part of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

The lawsuit centered on the actions of Father Eleuterio Ramos, who before his death admitted to sexually assaulting more than two dozen boys during a decades-long career that included stops in multiple parishes in Orange County, along with Father Siegfried Widera, who at the time of his death was one of the most wanted sex crime fugitives in North America.
