This week four (as of this writing) young men came forward to accuse Atlanta Bishop Eddie Long of coercing them into sexual relationships when they were teenagers. The charges are especially incendiary given that the megachurch leader is known as one of the most anti-gay pastors in the U.S. Recent pictures of Long in muscle shirts also raised some eyebrows but may not be relevant at a trial.
Many of the facts of this case have yet to be revealed. Is the bishop a hypocritical sexual predator? Or the innocent victim of conniving opportunists?
Many people want to actually read the lawsuit documents to try to enlightened themselves about the case, but where can you find online copies of the lawsuits?
Below are links (active as of 9/24) to the three Eddie long lawsuit documents that have been made public thus far. They are posted on the website of Fox 5 in Atlanta.
