So, let's recap: 1. Josh Duggar (is a Douche) victimized four of his sisters when he molested them as minors. 2. Josh Duggar (is a Douche) then was completely ok with his sisters being made

There aren't enough words in a thesaurus for my thoughts on Josh jumping in the lawsuit. So here's a cute foster kitten pic instead.

It's not uncommon for child victims to pretend to be asleep.  The story may not be made up, per se, it may be that in the environment they were and are still in, the victims feel unsafe and were and a

So, okay, I am definitely not a Degreed Law Professional(tm), but I play one on forums sometimes.  Still, ever go to Arkansas's "Court Connect" website?   It's amazing what you can find if you're looking.  We have so open of laws that we can see information on the Duggar's guardianship petition over the child in their custody, even.  

I'm hoping someone has a PACER account already active, but since they filed federally and I saw the case in the PACER index on Justia, I'm pretty sure we can see what defenses the city and the magazine use whenever they are finally served and answer formally.

For people not wanting public records about their molestation available, they're sure making them available permanently now.  I mean, I do get that the barn door had been open for awhile, but again... I don't think this is going to go well or be good psychologically for the girls in the end.  Even non-trial depositions will be uncomfortable for them, and if any of the defendants get to depose Jim Bob, Michelle, Josh himself, or Jim Holt.... those will be brutal.  And all of tbat would be before a trial or MSJ.

And since I think JB/M are the driving motivators behind this lawsuit, I hope that they pay for it if a prevailing defendant demands restitution for legal fees.  I don't think Jinger's hubby, at least, wants to go bankrupt, he may have assets of his own to protect.

I am convinced the victims wew coached, and the abuse was much worse than we are led to believe. That plus the fact that molestations happened multiple time's tells me these ARE NOT the actions of a sexually curious teenage boy with no outlet for that curiosity. Josh is sick, disturbed person, and I believe he has more victims out there.

Love the thread title...

I have never been able to wrap my head around the fact that Jill and Jessa were "Informed" of the abuse by their idiot parents.

It just doesn't make any sense at all. If they were sleeping that deeply, someone saw- I mean there were at least 6 sisters in that room at the time and didn't infant boys sleep there too?...  I think Jana or a littlun saw...Creepy older male in a room with multiple girls and infants...Someone fed those girls this line.

In the United States its nearly impossible to get legal fees. It has to be a completely meritless suit that was basically only made to harass the defendants. There is no chance in touch or the city would get legal fees in this case. 

I am also looking forward to reading the answers, but it will but it will be at least a few weeks possibly even a couple months depending on when they bare served and if they ask for extra time to answer.

Love the title, thanks @Buzzard!

I will say that I always thought the phrase "mild inappropriate touching" was so much WTF.  It's still abuse dammit.  I was astounded that it was described that way not only by JB / J'chelle but the girls were obviously fed that line.

Same here.  Why on earth did they tell those two?    Being motivated by honesty, perhaps?  But as pointed out, in a culture that guilts women for unknowingly tempting men when they are conscious this put the girls through all sorts of needless mindfuckery.

Josh is responsible but as the parents in this mess, JB and J'chelle bear even more for failing not just their son and their victimized daughters but the entire family.

Love the thread title!!

@gustava they're just under 2 weeks. They get 2-3 cc's out of a dropper every 2-3 hours. Two of the 4 are already past the goal of doubling their birthweight and the others should make weight by the end of the day. We also have to help them potty. They're just starting to open their eyes. They're cute but if I wasn't on massive steroids after getting poison oak I'd be exhausted!

As someone who was also informed of abuse later on, it's probably for the better. Then they don't get into the same situation I was in where I was wondering if I was having weirdly specific nightmares or repressing memories.

Either way, I'm sure they were told because that's the only way Joshley could repent. God wouldn't forgive him unless they told the sisters they were molested first.

I never believed they didn't know what happened, and had to be informed of it later on.  I always believed they were fully aware of the molestation, and the slept through it thing was made up to make Josh's behavior seem less severe.

Its interesting that Intouch doesnt seem to have published an article even mentioning the lawsuit.  I'm sure their lawyers told them not to comment, since they're named... but the depositions will give them enough ammo for an entire years worth of articles.  Even if this case is headed for mediation (and I dont think it is, Intouch is going to want solid law on this) the pleadings are going to be very painful for this sheltered bunch.  

I guess we'll find out if the girls ever got an (real) counseling, or any cult counseling.  They may get into nitty gritty sexual details on Joshly... I'll be particularly interested to know if the girls were coached, and they WILL be asked that.  Just remember, lies make baby jebus cry (and can land you in contempt).

What do we think is the earliest we will actually hear more about this lawsuit from the courts? when could proceedings (depositions, etc) actually start?

Answers should be filed in the next couple of weeks.  Depositions will take a lot more time, but interrogatories should be in the next couple on months.

Each named party will "answer" the complaint.  It will likely be "this is bullshit and should be dismissed" but will take 30 pages and say that will bigger words.

So the girls women get sacrificed to the altar of the almighty dollar by their parents yet again. Granted JB and Michelle are going to get what they want which is keeping the Duggars in the news.

Exactly! Shockingly the news comes out just before Joy's Wedding and oh! We have a new season of Counting On in June. The almighty dollar comes way before Jesus or others for JB and Mullet.

Can JB and Michelle be held accountable for outing Joy as one of the victims? They did mention the age range for her (single digest).

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
