Who are they protecting?
I may have this wrong, but isn’t the WT being fined $4000 a day for not releasing the names of pedophiles in the congregation to authorities? Is it possible that some of these pedophiles they are hiding are prominent members, maybe even a governing body member?
I believe they arrived at a settlement in that case and thus I would assume the fines go away since the plaintiffs are no longer demanding the files.
Yes, they did 'settle' that case. No more fines. Although, it is strange that they want to make the process of discovery as long as they can. Every single trial, they stall, stall, stall, appeal, appeal, appeal.
Perhaps, it is to see if the 'enemy' wears out? or runs out of money for court costs? or is 'willing to pay the price of patience'?
That's my idea.
Figures they settled -- hope the plaintiff (victim) was adequately compensated -- if that's possible!
