Women settle Sisters of Nazareth abuse claims for £15,000 each
March 1, 2016
Three women who claimed they were abused while staying at a children’s home in Belfast have settled High Court actions for £15,000 each.
Each of them separately sued the Sisters of Nazareth over their alleged treatment while in care decades ago.
But a judge was told that all three actions have now been resolved.
The plaintiffs are not being identified.
In court it was confirmed that payments are to be made to them, without any public admission of liability.
No further details of the cases were disclosed.
However, Mr Justice Stephens agreed to enter judgment for the three plaintiffs in the sum of £15,000 each.
He also ordered the defendant to pay the costs of their legal actions.
