“Two men have filed lawsuits in DeKalb County alleging that Bishop Eddie Long coerced them into having sex.Maurice Robinson, one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuits, alleges that Long, of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, used his ” spiritual authority as bishop and leader of defendants’ ministries to coerce certain young male members and employees of defendant New Birth and pupils of defendant Longfellows into engaging in sexual acts and relationships for for his own personal sexual gratification,” the lawsuit says.
Atlanta attorney Craig Gillen, who represents Long, said his client “adamantly denies the allegations in these two lawsuits and it is unfortunate that these two young men have chosen to take this course of action.”
The lawsuit names Long, New Birth and the Longfellows Youth Academy as defendants. According to the suit, the academy is a program for young men aged 13 through 18.
CNN is reporting that another lawsuit was brought by 21-year-old Anthony Flagg, who alleged Long took him on overnight trips to several U.S. cities.”
This is very very sad. That’s all I can say.
