There have been several developments within the past 90 days that have occurred in our fight to return our Landover (Jericho) campus. It is important to note that Apostle Betty Peebles died in October 2010. The self-appointed employee board filed suit against Bishop Joel Peebles and Chairman William Meadows days after Apostle Betty Peebles died and before she was buried. The congregation has filed 4 suits against the self-appointed board. The congregation WON the records case and we now have both Corporate and personal bank records. The self-elected board has dragged these cases on for over FOUR (4) years. They have used our tithes and offerings to pay their lawyers. The only ones benefiting from this is the lawyers. There are currently four (4) active cases. The statute of limitations has run out. There can be no new cases. They have run out of tricks and have boxed themselves in. They have avoided a jury trial for four years. Their day of reckoning is rapidly approaching. It is imperative that we pray for the souls that will be displaced. It seems that they have stuck their heads in the sand. Everyone knows that their days are numbered but them.
Summary Judgment: a court order ruling when a judge determines that there are no disputed material issues of fact in a case, and the side asking for it is entitled to judgment as a matter of law. As used here, “material issues of fact” refers to any facts that could allow a fact-finder to decide against one side. If the motion is granted, there will be no trial.
