    Hi everyone

    I am pleased to announce that Candace Conti, and her key lawyers Rick Simons and Kelly Kraetsch are planning a YouTube video to answer any questions that people in our community may have regarding the recent Conti v Watchtower lawsuit. I have offered to coordinate the gathering of these questions, and I thought it might be fun to do it in a "competition" style JWN thread, with the best answers being chosen by Kelly, Rick and Candace to be addressed in the video.

    As you can imagine, there are some provisos to this...

    • This is an active lawsuit, so for obvious legal reasons Kelly, Rick and Candace will have the absolute and final decision as to which questions are answered and how much information is divulged when they are answered.
    • We need the answers in the next 7 days, so the "cut off" for this competition is exactly 7 days from the time this thread goes live on JWN.
    • We kindly request that all questions are asked in a respectful manner without any malicious or offensive intent. Any inappropriate questions will obviously be discarded and ignored. We politely ask the moderators and administrators of this forum to keep a close eye on this thread and remove any comments that might be considered obscene or abusive.

    If, for any reason, you feel uncomfortable submitting your question publicly on this forum, you can email it to me at [email protected], and I will include it when I compile the rest of the questions at the end of the competition.

    As I've indicated, the winning questions will make it onto the final video, which will be produced over the Christmas period and hopefully released on YouTube in the New Year.

    So, is there a question about the case you have been dying to ask, but have never had the opportunity?

    Now is your chance. Kelly, Rick and Candace are waiting to hear from you.

    None of my questions are legal based. The main question I have is has she heard of any others that are seriously planning to take the route that she did against the Watchtower society? Has she been able to encourage others to take this step? Is she planning on writing a book about her experience?

    Thanks Christ Alone - the questions don't have to be of a legal nature. They can be about anything (within reason)!

    Those are great questions.

    The eagle-eyed among you will notice that I've edited the original post. I'm thrilled to learn that, in addition to Candace Conti and Kelly Kraetcsh, Rick Simons will also be sitting in on the interview!!

    This is a fantastic opportunity. If you are an avid follower of this landmark case, I can think of no better chance to get your questions answered by people "in the know".



    Will Rick Simons legal team be taking on anymore WBT$ cases?

    Thanks OUTLAW, another great question.

    I have my own question which sounds rather obvious, but I'm keeping it close to my chest for now!

    If this is successful, how will that have a bearing on future class actions?

    I have no questions for them, but I do wish them the best of luck in their efforts against the WTBTS!

    What I have been wondering is did the WTBTS lawyers ever try to say that the abuse never took place, or did they acknowledge that it did take place, but it wasn't their fault. I was curious why they didn't call Kendick to testify, or if he even denies that he abused Candace. Possibly someone here more versed in the case could answer that.
