Earlier today, I filed a petition for appeal with the Virginia Supreme Court. If the court grants my petition, I will have the opportunity to appeal the dismissal of my defamation lawsuit against Grace Episcopal Church.
At issue is the statute of limitations. While the statute of limitations in Virginia is one year, it is my contention that the statute of limitations should be tolled when, as here, the church concealed the defamatory email during discovery, along with 15 other documents.
Between the church’s fraudulent concealment of evidence, its myriad fabrications during litigation, its efforts to subpoena a dying woman in violation of the law, its false statements of law and fact during litigation, and Bob Malm’s perjury, all I can say is Grace is perhaps the most toxic church you could ever encounter.
My advice: Run!
