I noticed you guys are picking out alot of very smart things... I am not a smart guy at all... however it seems the opening few sentences are enough to hold someone accountable for this mess. Look at the opening sentences. If this quote alone is true it would be enough to warrant a huge lawsuit.
"Plaintiff Jane Doe (Candace Conti) was nine years old when the
elders of defendant North Fremont Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses
(“Congregation”) repeatedly assigned her to participate with Jonathan
Kendrick, a man known to them as a child molester, in the Congregation’s
door-to-door ministry known as “field service.” For nearly two years,
Kendrick took advantage of this opportunity, taking Candace to his home
where he repeatedly sexually abused her. "
