A settlement has been reached between 232 plaintiffs who were sexually abused by priests and nuns.
It happened from the 1930s to the 1970s at the Ursuline Academy in St. Ignatius, which is located about 40 miles north of Missoula.
The case began in 2011, and the settlement is for $4.45 million. The agreement breaks down to less than $20,000 per victim.
