Bishop Eddie Long, the Georgia pastor accused of sexual misconduct by four young men, is close to reaching a settlement with his alleged victims, according to the judge in the case.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
reports that Judge Johnny Panos said while mediation has been difficult, a settlement could be reached within the next few days.

Attorneys for the Long and the four accusers -- Maurice Robinson, Jamal Parris, Anthony Flagg, and Spencer LeGrande -- could not be reached for comment, according to the newspaper.
