Bishop Eddie Long Settles With Sexual Abuse Accusers
B.J. Bernstein, the attorney representing the men, said in a statement that the lawsuits against Long and his church have “been resolved.” Bernstein’s two-paragraph statement said that neither she nor the accusers would talk about the lawsuits “now or in the future.”
Eddie Long did state that he would fight the case because the allegations were false.
Art Franklin, a Long spokesman, said Thursday that the pastor settled because it “is the most reasonable road for everyone to travel.” “This decision was made to bring closure to this matter and to allow us to move forward with the plans God has for this ministry,” Franklin said in a statement.
Do you think it was a good idea for a settlement to be made? Do you think Bishop Long is guilty of what he's being accused of?
