Lawyer Drops Long’s Accusers for Violation of Settlement
Eddie Long’s accusers are in the news again.
This time three of the Bishop Eddie Long’s accusers have been dropped by their lawyer for violating the confidentiality clause of their settlement.
According to reports, Attorney Brenda Bernstein dumped Jamal Parris, Spencer LaGrande and Centino Kemp as her clients after the three accusers did not remain quiet and were recently challenged by Long’s attorneys, who say that they plan to collect roughly “$900,000″ for violations in the settlement.
The accusers broke the clause by participating in interviews with the Atlanta Journal Constitution, WSB-TV and CNN, as well as releasing statements on Twitter.
Long’s attorneys are looking to collect $300,000 per violation.
In May, Bishop Eddie Long reached an agreement in the case against the four men that accused him of sexual abuse.
The settlement between the four accusers was believed to be in the amount of $15 million.
You would think Eddie Long’s accusers would just take their money and shut up, but maybe it’s not about the money for them.
The Eddie Long scandal seems like it refuses to go away and we doubt this will be the last time we hear about this case.
Eddie Long thought he could throw the church’s money at his accusers and make this whole thing disappear. Well the joke’s on you Bishop.
