Case Against Mormon President Dropped

Benito Baeza

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A British court says the president of the Mormon church doesn’t have to answer to fraud allegations, and says a lawsuit brought by a former Mormon leader attempts to manipulate the court to attack the religious beliefs of others. A decision issued Thursday by Judge Howard Riddle of the Westminster Magistrates’ Court closes the case against President Thomas S. Monson. The lawsuit was brought by Thomas Phillips, who left the church in 2004 and now runs a website challenging church history and doctrine. Phillips says the church perpetuates lies to maintain a steady stream of tithing income. He called the ruling a setback. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued a statement saying they are satisfied with the decision and the case should have never been brought.
