Leaked docs, lawsuit fuel fire at La. College

PINEVILLE, La.  – A spate of leaked documents continues to fuel controversy at Louisiana College (LC), the Baptist Message reported March 13. Information from confidential meetings, letters from an attorney, a never-filed lawsuit and other documents have been made public over the past several weeks, the newspaper said.

The primary outlet of the leaked information has been from Baptist pastor and Williams Baptist College graduate, J.D. Hall of Montana. Hall is an outspoken critic of the LC Board of Trustees, its president Joe Aguillard and Louisiana Baptist Convention (LBC) Executive Director David Hankins, the Baptist Message said. In a related matter, Timothy Johnson, former executive vice president at the college, filed a lawsuit against the LBC-affiliated school March 11 claiming wrongful termination after he filed a whistleblower report alleging misconduct by the school’s president, the Associated Baptist Press reported.
