The good Bishop Eddie Long thought he paid his accusers 1.5 million in settlement money for their silence but they have been doing interviews and revealing details of the case in the media.
Attorneys representing Eddie Long’s church have informed three of the five young men who accused the Bishop of sexual coercion that they intend to recover nearly $1 million from their financial settlement according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
The letter, last week by the Atlanta law firm Drew Eckl & Farnham, alleges that Jamal Parris, Spencer LeGrande and Centino Kemp violated terms of a confidentiality agreement outlined in the settlement with Long and New Birth Missionary Baptist Church. The firm is seeking at least $900,000 already paid to the three accusers, according to people involved in the settlement but not authorized to speak publicly.
The letter could simply be a threat, said Atlanta litigator Hayden Pace.
“No one’s going to turn over the money just simply because you’ve asked for it,” Pace said. “You’re going to have to earn it back by establishing your right to it in the courts.”
The five (5) accusers are now considering book deals and movie rights.
I’m sure Eddie Long is pissing in his cleric clothes, knowing that his truth will indeed be revealed. The accusers wanted an admission of guilt from Long and never received it, so they will attempt to do whatever necessary to get satisfaction from this horrible experience.
