A settlement has been reached in the ongoing sexual abuse lawsuits against Bishop Eddie Long.
As previously reported, the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church head was accused by four men of sexual misconduct and was thought to be heading to trial later this year.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports “all matters have been resolved” and the plaintiffs will not seek trail against him.
The AJC reports that Barbara Marschalk, who represents New Birth Missionary Baptist Church and LongFellows Youth Academy, said she anticipates ” the lawsuits will be dismissed, with prejudice, by close of business tomorrow.”
The attorney for the four men B.J. Bernstein, also confirmed that the lawsuits had been settled..
Bernstein’s office made sure to add that neither she nor the plaintiffs would be available for an interview “on this matter, now or in the future.”
No word on what settlement was reached.
