    Liberty University sues ex-president Jerry Falwell Jr., alleging breach of contract and cover-up of scandal
    The Lynchburg, Va., university is seeking more than $10 million in damages

    Liberty University filed a lawsuit this week against its former president Jerry Falwell Jr., alleging that he breached his contract and fiduciary duties to the school as he sought to cover up a personal scandal.

    The evangelical Christian university in Lynchburg, Va., is seeking more than $10 million in damages from the man who led it for 13 years. The suit filed Thursday in Lynchburg Circuit Court marked another twist in the saga of Falwell’s messy departure last year from Liberty.

    “Falwell Jr. … knew that matters of infidelity, immodesty, and acceptance of a loose lifestyle would stand in stark contrast to the conduct expected of leaders at Liberty,” the university’s suit said.

    Falwell, 58, filed a defamation suit against Liberty in October, alleging the school accepted without verifying what he called false statements made by the young man [about sexual shenanigans]. He later dropped the lawsuit.

    I'm sure he'll find plenty of dupes to send him cash. All he has to do is talk about Jesus and cry a bit.

    You're right; Falwell should not have filed a defamation lawsuit.

    You seem to have mistaken a money-making business for a Christian organization.

    Rumor has it that Matt Gaetz might be forced to undergo a career change, courtesy of the DOJ, before the 2022 Interims - given that Falwell's personal life appears to be following in his footsteps, he would appear to be the perfect Republican candidate to replace Gaetz in the House!

    Whatever happened to "LOCK HER UP" - its at moments like this that conservatives and Trump supporters wish to resurrect the same spirit of "FORGIVENESS" and "BROTHERLY LOVE" that they displayed over the past 4 years?

    Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

    Personally I'd prefer both the Falwells and the 'university' go down though.

    Did Jerry Jr confess and ask for forgiveness?
