The Roman Catholic Diocese of Syracuse will pay $100 million to survivors of child sexual abuse at the hands of the church’s clergy, religious leaders, lay employees and volunteers.

The diocese — which filed for bankruptcy in June 2020 after victims filed more than 100 lawsuits against it — reached the agreement late last week with the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors, whose members all survived child sex abuse, according to a press release.

“This settlement shows the commitment of sexual abuse survivors, especially this committee, to stick together, and that when the Diocese tries to work with victims, instead of against them, a consensual resolution can be reached,” Jordan Merson, the attorney who represented the committee’s now-deceased vice chair and continues to represent nearly two dozen survivors, said in a statement.
