An out-of-court settlement has been reached in a suit that alleged a Catholic priest molested an altar boy seven years ago, officials say.
The Baltimore archdiocese reached a secret settlement in the suit filed by an Anne Arundel County couple in city Circuit Court more than a year ago.
The suit against the Rev. William Simms involved sexual fantasies the 13-year-old boy was forced to act out at St. Andrew by the Bay Church in Cape St. Claire in 1982.
The suit said the teenager has suffered severe depression as a result and required extensive psychiatric treatment.
The couple had asked for $12 million in damages. The suit named Simms, Archbishop William Borders and the archdiocese as defendants.
An archdiocese spokesman refused to discuss the suit Monday.
