LYNCHBURG, Va. – The private Christian university founded by Jerry Falwell is fired from a long-running lawsuit over an international kidnapping that followed the dissolution of same-sex civil union.
The News & Advance reports Vermont-based court rejected Liberty University’s Judith Jenkins’ lawsuit Aug. 29. Jenkins filed the lawsuit in 2012 against a number of people and organisations said they helped her former partner, Lisa Miller, to abduct their daughter, Isabella Miller-Jenkins, in 2009. Miller and Isabella are believed to have fled to a Mennonite community in Nicaragua.
Liberty was named as a suspect by his work of one of Miller’s lawyers and the loose connection with other involved law firm. Judge William Jenkins wrote that Liberty supported Miller’s position in the dispute, but was not involved in a conspiracy to kidnap Isabella.
