Ramsey County Attorney announces landmark civil settlement to protect children

The Ramsey County Attorney’s Office (RCAO) today announced a settlement agreement of the Civil Petition filed in Ramsey County District Court on June 5, 2015 against the Archdiocese of Saint Paul & Minneapolis (Archdiocese). The criminal action remains an active case and will proceed toward resolution in Ramsey County District Court.

The historic civil settlement agreement creates systemic change in how the Archdiocese protects children and responds to suspected incidents of child sexual abuse. The Agreement, which runs for three years, includes oversight and enforcement mechanisms by the RCAO and the Ramsey County District Court.
