Appeals Court Overturns Ruling Forcing Televangelist Ernest Angley To Pay Workers!
Reader Televangelist Ernest Angley, is back in the spotlight ( You Can Read It Here ) as the subject of a new ruling from the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The court decided to overturn a 2017 ruling that required Cathedral Buffet and Angley himself to pay more than $388,000 in back wages owed to workers as well as damages.
The latest appeals court ruling, which was unanimously decided by a three judge panel on Monday, said the workers did not expect to be paid for their work at buffet, meaning Angley did not violate fair labor laws. Angley claims that the buffet never made a profit. Judge Benita Peason, who presided over the 2017 case, previously suggested that Angley coerced his followers into volunteering at the buffet, equating not volunteering with not being faithful to God. Angley has previously been accused of abuse by members of his megachurch. ( You Can Read The Rest Here )
