Claims for Del. child abuse settlement due Friday
By Associated Press

The window to submit claims on behalf of young children who were sexually abused by former Delaware pediatrician Earl Bradley is closing soon.

In November, a judge approved a $123 million settlement for about 900 victims. The deadline to submit claims is Friday.

Attorneys involved in the case say the settlement represents a new way of dealing with fallout from sexual abuse that involves multiple victims. The settlement is mediated through a class action instead of filing individual claims.

After attorney fees are paid, there will be about $90 million available for victims. Former judge Thomas Rugger, who managed payouts to victims of abuse in the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington, will determine the compensation for each victim.

The settlement resolves claims against Beebe Medical Center where Bradley had hospital privileges.
