The new lawsuit against TBN alleges coverups of sexual and criminal scandals.
This lawsuit was filed by the uncle of Brittany Koper’s husband. Brittany Koper is, if you remember, the granddaughter of Paul and Jan Crouch, and the daughter of Paul Crouch, Jr., who is suing her attorneys for asking her to cover up financial fraud at TBN.
This is from the Orange County Register:
Jaw-dropping details about alleged financial digressions at Trinity Broadcasting Network were made in a lawsuit filed Thursday – including the purchase of a $50 million jet through “a sham loan to an alter ego corporation” for the personal use of the Crouches; a $100,000 motor home purchased by Trinity as a mobile residence for Jan Crouch’s dogs; “multiple residential estates” falsely reported as guest homes or church parsonages to avoid income disclosures; meal expenses of up to a half-million dollarsper company director; “personal chauffeurs compensated with Trinity funds under the guise of medical payments;” and “multiple cover-ups of sexual and criminal scandals.”
The suit was filed in Orange County Superior Court by Joseph McVeigh against Trinity Christian Center of Santa Ana (which does business as Trinity Broadcasting Network, the largest Christian broadcaster in the world), its International Christian Broadcasting arm, attorneys Davert & Loe (who do legal work for Trinity) and others.
McVeigh accuses Trinity and its lawyers of malicious prosecution in connection with a loan he received through Trinity companies.
So who is McVeigh? He is the uncle, by marriage, of Crouch granddaughter Brittany Koper — who sued Davert & Loe in federal court last month. Koper accused the world’s largest Christian broadcaster of unlawfully distributing charitable assets worth more than $50 million to its principals — and of firing her as its finance director, and beginning a campaign of “malicious retaliation” against her and her family (including McVeigh), for refusing to go along with the scheme.
Trinity paints a very different picture — saying it was Koper and her husband who committed financial misdeeds at Trinity.
