Jerry Falwell Jr. calls Liberty’s lawsuit against him “power grab,” “full of lies”

Liberty University said they were seeking millions of dollars in damages in a civil lawsuit against Falwell, over allegations that he breached an employment contract

But Falwell called the lawsuit “a power grab” on Saturday, and said the action was “full of lies and half-truths,” through a series of tweets.

“The Exec Comm of the LU Board has made yet another attempt to defame me and discredit my record following a series of harsh and unnecessary actions against my children, [wife] Becki, and me,” he wrote.

Falwell then added: “I always abided by the requirements that applied to everyone on the University staff. This lawsuit is full of lies and half truths, and I assure you that I will defend myself vigorously,” before stating that his family has now been banned from the university’s campus.

“We were threatened with arrest if we walk on campus. My son was told he was being fired after yrs of service for no reason other than I was a public figure. A big power grab to rule LU and $2 billion endowment I built,” he added.
