$6 million settlement for child abused by bowling coach

SEATTLE (AP) — Attorneys say they have reached a $6 million settlement over the sexual abuse of a child by his Seattle-area bowling instructor. The boy was abused from 2012 to 2017, beginning when he was 12. The coach, Ty Treddenbarger, is serving 25 years in prison. He abused boys at his home and at hotels during out-of-town tournaments. Attorneys Darrell Cochran and Andrew Ulmer filed the lawsuit against the sport’s governing body, the United States Bowling Congress, and other defendants. In a statement Monday, the USBC said its insurer agreed to pay the settlement. It said Treddenbarger was not its employee and it had never previously received a complaint about him.
