Bernice King, the daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
, has left her position as an elder of Bishop Eddie Long’s church just days after a settlement had been reached in the sexual misconduct case against the pastor.
The news was first reported by WSB TV, which runs Channel Action 2 News, Monday.
King served her last day as an elder of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, Ga., Sunday, Channel 2 Action News
reported, citing unnamed sources. She was seen giving the altar call during the church’s 11 a.m. service Sunday.
Sources told the Atlanta-based TV station
that they did not know if King’s resignation was related to the settlement and dismissal of the sexual misconduct lawsuits against Long.
Four young men, Anthony Flagg, Spencer LeGrande, Jamal Parris and Maurice Robinson, had accused Long of using his position and lavish gifts to lure them into sexual relationships.
Their lawsuits were officially dismissed “with prejudice” Friday, a day after lawyers for both sides confirmed a settlement was reached in the case.
