Duggar Sisters Sue Police For Releasing Incriminating Evidence In Molestation Case

Share

Four Duggars are taking legal action over their brother's molestation scandal, which their parents attempted to cover up. The Duggar girls also named InTouch Weekly for releasing the police reports and breaching their privacy.

Four sisters of Josh Duggar who were revealed to have told police that they'd been molested by their older brother filed a federal breach-of-privacy suit Thursday against the city of Springdale and Washington County, Arkansas, and publishers of the magazine that first revealed their identities.

Jill, Jessa, Jinger and Joy filed the suit against the city of Springdale, Arkansas over the 2015 police documents. They say that under Arkansas law, information collected involving minors is not subject to disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act.

Congressional aides told Reuters the committee was still negotiating in the hopes of obtaining the requested documents. The subpoena reportedly covers a "large number of documents" relating to "his interactions with Russian officials".

The Duggar girls say In Touch filed a Freedom of Information Act request in 2015 to obtain the docs - which they used to publish at least 8 stories about the investigation.

The information in the reports made it easy to identify which of the sisters were victims of the crimes. With the filing of their lawsuit, Jinger and Joy confirmed they were victims, as well.

At the time the accusations surfaced in the media, Jim Bob and Michelle spoke out about their eldest son.

At the time that In Touch's report was published, the Duggar sisters were starring on "19 Kids and Counting", which began following the family in 2008 and became TLC's highest-rated reality show. But Jill Duggar rejected In Touch's claim that it was the sisters who revealed they were among the victims in the molestation case.

The TLC stars claim that investigators approached them about the allegation, and they demanded and received promises of confidentiality.

Lawyers for the sisters told USA Today the case "is exclusively about protecting children who are victims of abuse". You'll recall, in the months following the story. the Duggars' show, "19 Kids and Counting", was canceled, and Josh entered a rehab program.
