The latest lawsuit only names Long and doesn’t name his church, New Birth Missionary Baptist.
“I am unaware of the lawsuit that you referenced and have no comment about it at this time,” Bishop Eddie Long spokesman Art Franklin told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
This lawsuit goes back three years, when Long and two partners bought a gym. They signed a contract to purchase Hoops N’ Fitness for $643,556, plus $223,000 in interest, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The person who sold the property eventually sued, stating that Bishop Eddie Long and his partners never paid the amount owed.
