funny how jw pr reps keep claiming the case pertains to just one person, the pedophile....... yet, the damages of 28 million were ordered mostly because of the SILENCING OF THE VICTIM policy that was employed, to shush-up miss conti.
the elders, under the direction of the jw legal team from headquarters repeately ordered her to shut-up about it all, along with threats of disfellowshipping for causing a division...... all to protect the IMAGE of their organization.
basically, miss conti's lawyer "outed" the real policy, and the cat is now out of the bag.

She overcame that upbringing and is the better person.

It hurts me that you could say these mean things.
I though we could talk and share our experiences, but all I've felt since I've been here is disrespect and hurt. Jehovah will judge these mean words.

"The ultimate goal of the lawsuit was to...bring to light that overall issue of violence and the hush-hush policy."
