A pastor who sued a former church member over comments she made on her blog has lost his case. I posted about the case here, and now the judge has dismissed every single claim in the defamation suit against Julie Anne Smith and four others. The judge has also awarded costs and attorney fees to the defendants, including for two defendants who were dropped from the pastor's suit after it was filed.
You can read about it from Julie Anne herself here.
I am grateful for Julie Anne and the others for the judge's decision. Hopefully, this case will help to further illuminate God's people on the existence of authoritarianism and spiritual abuse within the church.
