Rev. Ike hit with $5 million verdict in federal court

How did no one cover the male on male sexual harassment case before Judge Cooke? Rev. Ike just got hit for $5 million!

The case was: Augusto Medina vs. United Christian Evangelic Association & the Estate of Frederick Eikerenkoetter (Rev. Ike) -- Case No. 08-22111. Congrats to Robyn Hankins and Jennifer Ator for their big win.

I am working on getting some of the details of the case and will post soon. In the meantime, here's a clip of Rev. Ike:



UPDATE -- lots of great stories rolling in about the case. Here's one:

Rev. Ike testified in his deposition, which was played at trial, that he never had any sexual contact with Plaintiff Medina, and that there was no way this could have been consensual because it never happened. Also when asked if there was anyone who could overrule a decision made by him, Rev. Ike said, "All those in favor say aye, all those opposed say, I resign. No."

In the closing argument, Defendants' attorney said that Rev. Ike lied at his depo and that the sex was consensual. Of course Rev. Ike denied it ever happened, the lawyer said, because of his position and Medina knew that he had to deny it and would deny it, which is further proof of the calculated plan to extort money from Rev. Ike.

Apparently there was a gasp from Rev. Ike's widow, who was in the audience, when the lawyer revealed that there was consensual sex.

Wow.

Poor rich folks. They are victims. Everybody is after their money. Any way, every way, and every where. Rev. Ike is an honest minister that made it all the way to the top! People will miss him.

I have known and I collaborated with Rev Ike for more than 30 years and I know the truth. The truth is documented and I have it.

It all started with the case, Andrew Brown v.UCEA in 1976. Andrew Brown filed a verified complaint in New York State Court. Brown alleged that, Ike engaged in a variety of offensive, sexual contact. It's fair to say that many more boys will come forward with claims that can't be denied. I know this to be true. I was there.

CORRECTION:

The year was 1996, Brown v. UCEA "Rev. Ike." Sorry for the error. My glasses need cleaning.
