Retired Maryland Court of Appeals Judge Irma Raker, who served as a claims judge in the class action case, says the checks, ranging from approximately $1,900 to almost $ 28,000 may be e-mailed and 2 June. The case has been described as the largest sexual abuse settlement from a single perpetrator in AMERICAN history.
