NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Hartford says its insurer has failed to cover more than $1 million the archdiocese paid out in recent years to settle four sexual misconduct cases involving priests.

The archdiocese filed a federal lawsuit last week against Interstate Fire and Casualty Company of Chicago. The lawsuit says the insurer was supposed to reimburse claims that exceed $200,000, but has failed or refused to make payments to the archdiocese.

An attorney for the archdiocese says the insurer owes the archdiocese more than $1 million.

A spokeswoman says the insurer doesn’t comment on pending lawsuits.
