Liberty University sues Jerry Falwell Jr. for $10 million in damages

“The complaint alleges that Falwell created a ‘well-resourced exit strategy’ from his role via a 2019 employment agreement while not telling Liberty officials about his personal scandals.” - C.Post



Dicey deals by Falwell are going back about a decade, so I think that Liberty has an uphill climb here to retrieve their severance pay for Falwell. Simple fact is that the university knew about many of these deals and in many cases even defended them, so to argue that somehow they were in the dark is to argue against their own PR statements.

Not trying to be a defender of Falwell by any means, and ten million smackeroos for getting thrown out on one’s keister for adultery and other misconduct is nauseating, but I don’t know how Liberty prevails here.

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.
