The Duggar family isn’t finished with all of its legal business. As you may know, the family has been dealing with several legal issues throughout the past year. Josh Duggar was arrested on child porn charges, went to trial in late November, and was found guilty earlier this month.
Amid the news of Josh’s conviction, his sister Jana’s misdemeanor went public. She received a written citation in September, but it was kept under wraps until recently. Though the details are murky and it’s not obvious what the truth is, sources claim that she fell asleep while babysitting. A young child who was supposed to be in her care was found out in the road. So, the authorities were called and Jana received a citation. She’s made it clear that she was not arrested.
Now, several of the Counting On sisters have taken the next step in their own lawsuit.
Duggar sisters’ lawsuit gets court date in 2022.
KNWA reports the latest update in the Duggar sisters’ lawsuit. The Western District of Arkansas federal court has now set a time period for the sisters’ lawsuit. The trial will start on April 18, 2022, or within the 14 days following. The sisters involved in the case include Joy-Anna Forsyth, Jinger Vuolo, Jessa Seewald, and Jill Dillard. If the trial needs to be postponed, it will be moved to June 20, 2022.
The pretrial conference is on April 11, 2022, while Motions in Limine are to be filed by March 28, 2022.
“The parties have indicated that the case will take seven (7) days to try. The case may be called up and tried at any point during the term; however, a more precise starting date will be set as the trial term approaches,” court documents read.
The sisters claim that officials improperly released redacted police reports to a tabloid. Their attorney believes the information released made it easy for the women to be identified.
The police reports released were about Josh’s molestations when he was a teenager. When the information went public, the details left in the reports and published in the magazine revealed which sisters were his victims, the Duggar women alleged. So, they are hoping to fight back against the responsible organizations.
