Vermont Sisters Sue Jehovah's Witnesses For Child Sex Abuse
Today, the Zalkin Law Firm filed two lawsuits against a Jehovah's Witnesses congregation
and the Watchtower, the national JW organization.
Jehovah's Witness Sex Abuse Lawsuit Filed
"The two cases against True aren’t Zalkin’s only pending lawsuits against Jehovah’s Witnesses. He has been involved with more than 20 such cases across the U.S., six of which were settled out of court for confidential but “substantial” amounts, he said.
In those cases, documents kept by the church showed that officials were aware of the sex abuse. Zalkin said Jehovah’s Witnesses keep similar records, but have refused to disclose them under court order."
