LOS ANGELES (CNN) -- Four California men allegedly molested as boys by a priest have settled their lawsuit against the Los Angeles Archdiocese and Cardinal Roger Mahony for almost $10 million, their attorneys said Tuesday.
The priest, no longer in the clergy, abused the boys on several occasions dating back to the 1970s, including during overnight trips to San Diego and Riverside counties, the attorneys said.
The priest pleaded guilty to molesting boys in 2007 and was recently released in 2011 with credit for time served, the attorneys said.
The civil lawsuit was filed separately by two brothers and two other persons, and the plaintiffs and the church and Mahony reached a confidential settlement this month, attorney Vince Finaldi of Irvine, California.
The archdiocese didn't immediately respond to a CNN request for comment.
