Lawyers representing Bishop Eddie Long, New Birth Missionary Baptist Church and the four young men who have accused Long of sexual coercion met in a DeKalb courtroom today to discuss the next phase of the lawsuits.
According to WSB, a tentative date of February has been set to begin mediation. A tentative date of early July was also announced for trials to begin.
Attorney Bonnie Bernstein, who represents the four plaintiffs, said today that she wanted each plaintiff to have his own trial. Long’s attorney said he was not ready to commit to four separate trials. Both attorneys said each trial could last a week.
