DOVER, Del. (AP/WBOC)- A New Castle County Superior Court judge has approved a $123 million settlement in a class-action lawsuit filed on behalf of young children who were sexually abused by former Delaware pediatrician Earl Bradley.

Judge Joseph Slights III issued his ruling Monday after holding a hearing last week.

The settlement resolves claims against Beebe Medical Center, a Lewes, Del., hospital where Bradley had hospital privileges, the Medical Society of Delaware, and five physicians accused by the plaintiffs of not reporting suspicions about Bradley to authorities.

Bradley, 59, of Lewes, is serving 14 life sentences for child rape after being convicted last year by a judge who viewed more than 13 hours of homemade videos showing sex crimes against more than 80 victims.
