The Archdiocese of Los Angeles has settled four clergy sex abuse cases brought by individuals who were molested by one of the Diocese's most notorious pedophile priests, Father Michael Baker.
The settlement comes just after the Archdiocese of Los Angeles released thousands of documents relating to sexual abuse within the Church. Some of those documetns show that Cardinal Rodger Mahoney knew that Father Baker had molested children in the past, but failed to do anything to protect children, such as these four plaintiffs, in the future. Two of the four cases were nearing trial.
