The jury in the case ruled that St. Elizabeth's parish was negligent in not preventing Francis DeLuca from sexually abusing John Vai.
The diocese agreed Wednesday to a $77 million settlement with nearly 150 alleged victims of sexual abuse. It also agreed to release internal church documents detailing how it handled the priest abuse scandal.
Vai said Thursday he is satisfied that the church's secret archives will finally be opened, but he noted that diocese officials have yet to personally apologize to any victim of priest sex abuse.
