Grace Episcopal Alexandria: Legal Update

Grace Episcopal Alexandria

It’s never a dull day when it comes to my lawsuits against Grace Church, perjuring priest Bob Malm, and members of Bob’s family.

Earlier today, the Alexandria Circuit court notified the parties that it has rescheduled motions court to September 9 in my lawsuit against Leslie Malm for defamation.

Meanwhile, as I await a response to my motion for reconsideration in the lawsuit in the Pennsylvania courts, which seeks to recover Mom’s legal fees, I have filed an appeal to the Venango County Court of Common Pleas. My notice of appeal is below. Once it has been served on the magistrate and perjuring priest Bob Malm, Pennsylvania rules require the filing of a complaint within 20 days.

Check it Out: Leslie Malm Falsely Claims Settlement Proposal is Somehow a Court Order

Just when we thought life on Planet Malm couldn’t get an weirder, we get news on the legal front that  takes weird to a whole new level.

In her plea of the Statute of Limitations, filed in response to my lawsuit against her for defamation, Leslie claims that the settlement proposal proferred by the church and perjuring priest Bob Malm somehow magically became part of the protection from abuse order. It did not, and the proposal has no legally binding effect upon the parties.

The reality is that I rejected the church’s settlement proposal on the spot and did not offer a counter-proposal. My reasons for doing so:

  1. I did not wish to incentivize or reward perjuring priest Bob Malm’s lies, perjury, and misrepresentations.
  2. The settlement offer contained a confidentiality provision. Church abuse experts regard such provisions as themselves inherently abusive, for they prohibit victims of abuse from sharing their experiences and warning others. In the past several years, the Catholic church has seen such provisions knocked down in the courts and legislatures repeatedly.
  3. The settlement offer was the antithesis of Christian conduct and included zero provisions for accountability on the part of perjuring priest Bob Malm or the parish.
  4. Perjuring priest Bob Malm, as we have seen in his defamatory email to Bishop Shannon (including his outright lie about the timing of my arrival at Grace Church), like many at Grace Church, engages in much of his manipulation behind the scenes. Thus, the settlement proposal’s requirements for the church were illusory, for it would have only addressed public disparagement.

Eric Bonetti v. Leslie Malm: Motions Court Set for August 26

Above is the notice from Leslie Malm’s attorney, Wayne Cyron, providing notice of motions court regarding Malm’s plea in bar of the statute of limitations. The matter is addressed by black letter law; Virginia statute specifically provides that an injunction, as was involved here, that prevents a lawsuit, results in tolling of the statute during the duration of the injunction.
