The Catholic Diocese of Fort Worth has settled another abuse case brought by victims of the Rev. Thomas Teczar. Terms and the three victims' names were not disclosed.

In 2005, the diocese settled a $4.15 million lawsuit brought by victims of Mr. Teczar, who was convicted this year of sexual assault and indecency with an 11-year-old boy in Eastland County. He's serving a 25-year sentence.
