Earl Paulk Sexual Misconduct Case Dropped

The lawyer for Bobby and Mona Brewer dropped a sexual misconduct lawsuit filed against Atlanta minister Earl Paulk, founder of the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit, on Monday, less than a month before it was scheduled for trial, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

The Brewers filed suit in 2005, alleging that Paulk used his role as a spiritual leader to coerce Mona Brewer, a former church soloist, into having a 14-year affair with him. Paulk's lawyer acknowledged that Paulk had a sexual relationship with Mona Brewer but said she initiated it.

The couple’s lawyer, Louis Levenson, said he dropped the case because he was having difficulty getting witnesses to testify against Paulk and was experiencing long delays in preparing the case, the newspaper said.

Levenson dropped the case just before DeKalb Superior Court Judge Mark Anthony Scott was to rule on Paulk's lawyers' motion by to dismiss the allegations on grounds that the couple waited too long to file suit under Georgia law.

Because he dropped the case before the ruling, Levenson can file another suit with the same allegations, reports the Journal-Constitution. Currently, the Brewers have not announced plans to refile the lawsuit.
