BATON ROUGE, La. - An attorney says a 45-year-old Houston man who claims he was sexually abused as a boy by a former Baton Rouge bishop has settled his lawsuit against the Roman Catholic dioceses of Baton Rouge and Corpus Christi for $225,000.

Glenn Hymel filed his suit two years ago alleging he was abused by Bishop Joseph Sullivan from 1978 to 1982 after entering a Baton Rouge seminary for minors.

Hymel said he transferred to a minor seminary in Corpus Christi after the Baton Rouge school closed. He claimed Sullivan visited the Texas school and continued to abuse him.

Attorney Chelsie King Garza said Wednesday that Hymel also was abused by Sullivan on out of state trips.

Sullivan served as bishop of the Diocese of Baton Rouge from 1974 until his death in 1982.
