Read a “Discussion of Liability Issues” in court documents filed on 04-19-2012.

“Settlement Conference Statement of The North Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses, Fremont California”

“Discussion of Liability Issues”

At the time of the alleged abuse, Kendrick was not an agent of either the North Fremont Congregation or Watchtower of New York. He was not in any position of responsibility or authority within either the congregation or Watchtower of New York. Therefore, Watchtower of New York and the North Fremont Congregation cannot be liable for any alleged conduct by Kendrick that did not occur on Kingdom Hall property or during congregation activity.

“If, arguendo, the abuse occurred, it was by one congregation member against another congregation member. Neither of the Church Defendants can be held liable for abuse of this
nature.

Further, the Church Defendants had no legal duty to report abuse of a minor to the authorities before January 1, 1997,(clergy first became mandated reporters at that time) and did not report the touching of Kendrick's step-daughter. Nonetheless, a police report was evidently made by the family and Kendrick was prosecuted.

The minister-communicant privilege is still recognized by California law. The Church Defendants could not have disclosed the 1993 incident without violating that privilege, which belonged to both Kendrick and the Church Defendants.

The fact that Kendrick later pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor arising out of the 1993 incident with Andrea was never disclosed to the Church Defendants. The Church Defendants had no notice of "child sexual abuse" by Kendrick in 1993. They had a confession by Kendrick that he had inadvertently or accidentally touched Andrea's breast over her clothes, and Andrea and her mother, Evelyn Kendrick, never told the two elders anything different from what Kendrick had confessed to them (the elders).

The elders of the North Fremont Congregation removed Kendrick from any position of responsibility or authority in 1993 and watched him during church meetings and functions to see whether he acted inappropriately with any children at the Kingdom Hall. Kendrick was not allowed to engage in congregation activity around children without supervision. The elders and Plaintiffs parents never saw Kendrick abuse Plaintiff in the Kingdom Hall. The elders never saw Plaintiff leave the Kingdom Hall with Kendrick. Plaintiff s parents never allowed Kendrick to take Plaintiff to his home.

“Settlement Issues”

If Plaintiff was abused, it was committed by Kendrick, a third party not under the control or supervision of the Church Defendants. Kendrick denies abusing Plaintiff. Further, even if, arguendo, the jury should find that Kendrick abused Plaintiff in the Kingdom Hall by hugging her and having her sit on his lap while her parents were present, the damages for that alleged conduct would be minimal at best. Also, if the jury finds the Church Defendants liable for abuse of Plaintiff off of Kingdom Hall property (such as in Kendrick's private home), the Church Defendants will have little option except to appeal such a verdict. The Church Defendants could not let such a potential precedent go unchallenged.

Finally, Plaintiffs description of the location, nature, and extent of her alleged abuse is contradicted by, among other things, her parents and the elders and thus lacks credibility. No demand for settlement has yet been made by Plaintiff; however, the Church Defendants will participate in the mandatory settlement conference in good faith.”
----------

The elders never witnessed the Plaintiff leave the Kingdom Hall with Kendrick because it very well could have never happened. I owe Candace Conti's parent(s) an apology for what I've said about her parent(s) voluntarily allowing a thirty or forty year old man to take custody of their minor daughter. Her own parents don't even back her story.

. They had a confession by Kendrick that he had inadvertently or accidentally touched Andrea's breast over her clothes,

##########

a married couple has a couple over to the house for the evening

During the night the married husband goes to his guest bedroom and inadvertently or accidentally touched his friends wife's breast over her clothes

##########

i can see a good lawyer to the entire courtroom including the judge

By a show of hands

could all the married men raise their hands who have ever inadvertently or accidentally touched a sleeping womans breast over her clothes who was not your wife, while your wife was in the next room over?

this phrase is so "LEGAL" SOUNDING

inadvertently or accidentally touched TOUCHED A breast

"A jury of 12 believed" O.J. Simpson.

On what basis did a jury of 12 believe Candace? Why did they automatically believe the "victim?"

For what reason?

Just because a person claims to be a victim and puts on an emotional display?

With this line of reasoning, a person can claim damages against any profit or non-profit organization with no logical basis.

"Crying spells" don't automatically convince a rational jury of malice with out any real evidence or credible witnesses.

We'll see what happens in a court of appeals. In the mean time, based on court documents, what's your reasoning behind believing the plaintiff's claims?

So the creep molested before her and then again after her...but didn't molested her?? Come on...you don't really believe that, do you?
Now if Simpson murdered a wife before Nicole and than one after her...don't you think the verdict would have been different? By the way...he was found guilty in the Civil courts.

even if it is, the news is out, and hopefully many more will come forward. do you care about the JW that have been abused, or do you side with those that beat up his little ones.

No.

I do hope that the case is overturned. I hope the society will not have to unjustly pay MS Conti this astronomical, obscene amount.

Let just let the appeal process work its way through the courts.

When i pray alone or my wife an i pray together we always make it a point to include a prayer on behalf of the persecuted ones around the world.

So while i may not specifically say a prayer for Ms Conti or her accuser. I may say a prayer for all unjust actions taken against the witnesses by diffrent goverments around the world.

That would include this horredously unfair decision against WTBTS by a jury.

And you will be awarded according to your works.

Woe to you.

ms conti refused to be paid gag order, ms conti asked for 1,444 $

The jury which awarded her much more saw the overwhelming evidence that this person is a victim of wt policy that did not prevent her from being molested by a pedophile they new was in the KH, which they did not report to the police, this could have been prevented.

And its validation for all those other victims with the same story the responsiblilty was the Wt Ms Conti is the victim here not the WT.

And the jury saw that from the WT own letters.

DW...I had read some of this info before. BUT we can always be sure that JW haters, jump with glee when they can throw mud against our Organization. AND even embelish it. Seems the one responsible is the man who commited the act, not JW's as a group.

What works are those tpmp. Judas betrayed Christ.

How one treats Christs sheep is what this is about, many have been stumbled by orders being brought down by the GB.

Do you find that scripture insulting take it up with Jehovah he is the one that inspired it to be written.

Or do you deny that shepherds have not abused Gods sheep, it is documented even by the GB. Sad part is that no justice has been done for the sheep, why do you object to that?

Why is it you side with pedophiles and beat up Gods sheep.

That scripture shows how Jehovah feels about those who are to care for his little ones but prove to be wolves.

Not all shepherds are wolves but their are shepherds that are and have been, Jehvoah says that himself, and I for one don't support your obvious hatred of any victim speaking out, your not the one abused so why would you care, if it was one of your kids perhaps you may just think of how Jehovah feels about the abuse of his sheep by wicked men in the organization, and how many of these things were covered up by those that deny justice for Gods sheep, in fact like you they fight against them, and stand by the wickedness and pedophiles. You should look at your own actions, and quit bashing Jehovah's sheep, those that never had a voice as a child but now are speeking out, which you hate because it shows up you idol.

They have claimed salvation comes through them &their org. Jesus said HE WAS THE door any who come in by another way are theives and plunderers-hired men that abandon sheep to be ripped apart by ravenous wolves !:esus is proved right again! ;He also promised what is done in secret will be shouted from the rooftops!:THIS IS ONLY THE BEGGINING!?ark my words. The servants of Satan keep turning themselves into preachers of righteousness! You people really need to look at whats going on ,or you will find youreselves fighting against Yahweh himself!

if the organiZation had of protected the sheep their would be no victim, how was she or anyone else besides the elders to know that that their was a pedophile among them.

Yes the pedophile is to blame of course but so are those that are to make sure that the sheep are not in harms way, instead they trust b/s unless there is reason not to which they had no reason as they knew nothing about this creep.

And most people do not hate JW but do not care for the leaders that have a policy that protects its image rather then JW.

They claim to meticulously follow the Bible by using the 2 witness rule. Whats ironic is these proceedings were to be held before all,not in secret in a back room also Christians were told to openly confess their sins to one another before the congregation. If THIS was followed they wouldnt have this problem. Instead they have a secretdatababase of over23,000 known JW molesters ,that they are fighting tooth & nail to keep secret!_They strain the gnat and swallow the camel. They keep proving themselves hired men that abandon the flock to ravenous wolves. They keep proving themselves to be the stupid prophets speaking in the name of Jehovah-and have waited for a word to come true!(Ezekiel 13) May God be proved true -The day of reckoning appears to be looming ever closer. And like the Jewish leaderd that arrogantly assumed they were in Gods truth,they found themselves bound and thrown into the darkness!

Also it seems JWS are blinded to the fact that the org. Has claimed to be approved in 1919 and in spiritual paradise or the highway of holliness where NO PREDATOS OR WICKED WALK! Just another lying prophecy!_They KNOW OF 23,000 MOLESTERS in their ranks!_THINK ABOUT THESE THINGS!_They are trying to DF,LEGISLATE KEEP THINGS HIDDEN to make spiritual paradise a reality-something ONLY GODS SPIRIT CAN DO!
