Word Of Faith Sexual Harassment Settlement

Posted: Updated:
Jackson -

An attorney says a settlement has been reached in a federal lawsuit that alleged the former pastor of a Jackson megachurch of sexually harassing an employee.

 

Jamila Slaughter sued Word of Faith International Christian Center and Bishop Kevin Wright in June 2011.

 

Slaughter's attorney, Carlos Moore, said the settlement was reached Tuesday after a hearing in U.S. District Court in Jackson.

 

Moore said terms of the deal are confidential.

 

An attorney for the church, Charles R. Wilbanks Jr., did not immediately respond to a message.

 

Word of Faith was founded in Detroit in 1978 and has more than 30 satellite churches, including the one where Slaughter and Wright worked in Jackson.
