Marcus Lamb, Daystar Vindicated in Worker Lawsuits

Marcus Lamb

Three women who previously filed employment law claims against Tarrant County-based Daystar Television Network and its founder, Marcus Lamb, have dropped their lawsuits.

Jeanette Hawkins filed suit claiming Lamb’s admission of a marital affair caused her “great emotional pain” because it compromised the Christian values she expected at the network. Karen Thompson also sued, alleging Daystar demoted her, slashed her salary and evicted the producer from her office for refusing to end a relationship with a male employee at Daystar. And Jennifer Falcon’s suit alleges that Bill Trammel, father of Daystar co-founder Joni Lamb, sexually harassed her.

The plaintiffs will not receive any financial compensation, either individually or for attorney fees, as a result of the litigation and will have no right to re-file.

“We are pleased the lawsuits against Daystar and related defendants have been dropped and that this resolution involves no payment of any kind to the three former plaintiffs or their attorney,” says Arnold Torres, business administrator for Daystar.

“We believe the decision to permanently drop these lawsuits without compensation confirms the true nature of these unfounded allegations and vindicates our position in fighting these claims. Marcus and Joni Lamb and the entire Daystar family are grateful for the overwhelming support received from so many during this difficult period.”

With the dismissal of all of the claims of Hawkins, Thompson and Falcon, Daystar has agreed to drop its own lawsuit brought against the women. Daystar had filed countersuits against the women, claiming they tried to extort the network for $7.5 million. This action formally ends all litigation associated with the parties.
