$123M settlement reached in class-action pedophile pediatrician lawsuit

The Washington Post, October 11, 2012

Attorneys for the state medical society and a southern Delaware hospital have settled a class-action lawsuit filed on behalf of victims of former pediatrician Earl Bradley, who sexually abused scores of his young patients over more than a decade.Under the settlement disclosed Wednesday, $123 million will be placed into a trust for the benefit of victims. Bradley, 59, is serving 14 life sentences for child rape. The victims fund is composed mainly of insurance proceeds, with an additional cash contribution from Beebe Medical Center. Defendants in the lawsuit included Beebe—where Bradley had hospital privileges—the Medical Society of Delaware, and five physicians accused by the plaintiffs of not reporting suspicions about the ex-doctor to authorities.
