I recently made the decision not to pursue the lawsuit against Grace Episcopal, the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia, and Susan Goff.
My reasons are myriad and include strategic and tactical components. Because there are still five lawsuits under way, it’s not appropriate to go into all the reasons. But it is fair to note that the decision will allow me to more fully focus time and attention on the other cases.
Moreover, it’s fair to conclude that perjuring priest Bob Malm will attempt, like Kelly Motormouth Gable, to shelter from individual liability by claiming that he was acting within the scope of his employment as rector of Grace Episcopal, the clergy perjury parish. So it is not exactly like the parish gets a pass, and discovery, which will undoubtedly include various vestry members, current and previous clergy, church and school staff, and more, should prove interesting. Indeed, if the past is precursor to the future, we will see many more ugly skeletons emerge from the bowels of the church; one can always count on the good Christians of the parish for ugly gossip, speculation, and commentary. In fact, it would come as no surprise to discover additional fraudulent concealment on the part of the parish, Sugarland Chiow, and perjuring priest Bob Malm.
