    Just more bad publicity making the leaders look bad. Especially now in a very sensitive time regarding child molestation. The JW leadership has tried all it can to preserve and present a clean image.

    Yet all it has accomplished through their internal handling of matters and the two-witness rule is the exact opposite. More negativity and scornful reproach has been heaped upon its precious image and religion.

    I might have just missed it, but I didn't see the name of the attorney or law firm.

    Anyone know?

    Anyone who has a potential claim might want to know what firms have been so successful.

    $34 million? wow!

    Attorneys all over the USA will notice this. WT attorneys will cringe; personal injury lawyers will start lining up new clients.

    My JW wife promised me that she wont donate to WT if these allegations are true.

    But she refuses to see if I show any websites to her and said she would beleive only if it comes on any national TV.

    Any one, please advise.....

    There are two significant problems one can see exercised by the JWS. which can no doubt stir up problems from a sociological behavioral perspective .

    One being the two witness only rule combined with the Christ's personal redemption from sin.

    It theoretically opens the door a little wider to people to act irresponsibly to one another or in this case toward children.

    EverApostate - order the newspaper. I'm going to check the NY Times.

    Dagney, thats a good advice. Never knew I could order newspapers!

    This is before the trial. Good article though, and the WT has a female attorney. Interesting. Nice try WT.

    EverApostate, you can get the NY times online anywhere in the world. Free for a week or so or special price to sign up.

    They also do a daily email news update, I'll watch tomorrow and see if it's mentioned. You can go online and sign up for that too.
