Texas Baptist ‘Valleygate’ lawsuit settlement acknowledged
The dismissal followed a mediated settlement, which we reported last month.
According to the Baptist Standard, the dismissal included a deposition from Arango confirming the accuracy of the Standard’s reporting on the issue.
The amount paid Arango was not disclosed in the Baptist Standard account, although the story by Ken Camp did say:
In the final settlement, Arango and his attorneys released all claims against the Standard and agreed to dismiss the suit.
“While the Standard would have preferred not to spend any more of our insurance company’s funds, we concur with our attorney and insurance representative that this settlement is a sound business decision,” Knox said. The settlement costs were less than anticipated expenses from the next round of legal expenses, which would have been an appeal to have the case dismissed on summary judgment
“We were happy to save the insurance company some money,” he said. “We also were relieved to remove this distraction, so we can focus more of our attention on telling the story of God’s work across Texas and around the world.”
