Former FRC Leader Josh Duggar Loses Privacy Suit Against Tabloid That Broke Molestation/Incest Story

The New York Post reports:

Josh Duggar has lost his lawsuit against In Touch Weekly, Page Six has learned. The celebrity magazine revealed in 2015 that Duggar was accused of molesting his younger sisters—all of whom starred on the hit “19 Kids and Counting” reality show—in 2006 while Duggar and the women were all minors.

In June of this year, Duggar and his sisters separately sued In Touch’s parent company, Bauer Publishing, claiming that the local police had provided In Touch with their names, even though their identities should have been redacted by the cops before being handed over to the magazine.

Duggars sisters Jill Dillard, Jessa Seewald, Jinger Vuolo and Joy Duggar filed suit in Arkansas in June, and Duggar later joined the suit, making similar claims against the magazine and the police.

The court ruled that it wasn’t the magazine’s fault that police released their names. The Duggars’ suit against the police is continuing.

    So, in other words, it’s okay the cops fingered him.

    Honestly. “Brother of 392 sisters molests two of them” isn’t that hard to figure out anyway, and you can’t sue me just because somebody shoves your medical records into my hands. It’s not my fault or my problem.

    The easy answer is to just stop fingering your sisters, and stay off the airwaves.

          I coulda said that Trump would do it for her. Is that better? 🙂

          • liondon#iamnotatraitor

            …or Josh Duggar.

          • Treant

            She’s way too old for Josh to go after her.

          • clay

            . . . looks too much like his wife for him to find her attractive.

      • Rex

        I can think of worse things she could lick.

        • 2guysnamedjoe

          I can’t.

        That’s not barbecue sauce.

  • edrex

    but it was the magazine’s fault that he molested his sleeping sister. right, josh?

  • BobSF_94117

    When the grift fails, sue.

  • Todd20036

    As bad as Duggar is, I have to say, his parents are worse for enabling him, and TLC is worse for profiting off of him… even after the allegations came to light.

    Duggar needed some tough love and punishment, and got neither. And no, I’m not justifying what he did. But I am saying that it’s not just his fault.

    • JAKvirginia

      What he needed were parents he could talk to and discuss his feelings. Don’t forget he was a teenager when he did his deeds. But when Mom and Dad are too busy making babies I guess there wasn’t any time to actually parent the ones they made.

    • bambinoitaliano

      That is what being a devout Christian is. Relinquishing one basic responsibility by surrendering thoughts and logics to a centuries old fictional novel.

    • Nowhereman

      I think that TLC is still carrying this family on a “reality” show. Disgusting.

    • charemor

      The parents probably can’t even remember all of these kids.

  • bkmn

    There is something odd about him but I can’t put my finger in it.

      You don’t know where he’s been.

    • greenmanTN

      At least the girls couldn’t complain that Josh never lifted a finger around the house…

      • Christian1234567

        Why do you think it’s appropriate to joke about sexual abuse like that? Sexual abuse causes much harm to the victims.

        • greenmanTN

          There isn’t much I think can’t be joked about, at least in some contexts, like when all the people involved are the nicer-nice face of a really nasty and regressive religious belief system which seeks political power by pumping out children to be “arrows for God.” I would never wish sexual abuse on anyone but considering that women in Dominionism are basically property passed from father to husband (and the marriages are all but arranged), they have a lot of other things to worry about. Add in that Dominionism is VERY involved in policing other people’s lives and sexuality, personally, politically, and legally, this black eye to their holy hypocrisy is fair game.

          • Christian1234567

            I survived sexual abuse.
            I don’t think that it’s amusing.

          • greenmanTN

            So did I, from a neighbor. You handle it your way, I’ll handle it mine.

      If you have not seen the episode…it is so funny and WRONG….

    • JAM661

      How about the fact that he sexually abused his sisters should be very odd. In fact it is crimnals but hear they are suing the police and paper about the story instead of dealing with the issue. This guy also has had affair after affair since he has been married while his wife is home with I think now 4 children. How about just naming him for what he is a sexual predator who is an absolute creep who should at least be on the sex offenders list.

  • Ninja0980

    Will all the GOPers who appeared with him and his family and got publicity from them be asked to denounce him the way Democrats are with Weinstein?

  • Gene Perry

    Here’s a hint, Josh … if you don’t want publicity, then don’t go on a TV reality show.

  • bambinoitaliano

    This is the legacy of Tony Perkins and the FRC.
    Not whatever bullshit the grifter and his organization is trying to sell. An enabler of sexual predator and nothing more.

    What are asshat Duggars’ damages? Assuming they exist, arguendo (even in a lawyers’ imagination), what evidence is there to prove them? Their show became less popular? bwahaha

      I want to know what damages WE can claim for being made to know the Duggars exist.

      • Phillip in L.A.

        Now we’re finally getting somewhere! 🙂

        • boatboy_srq

          They can start a new show to pay the claims: 18 Non-Felons And Counting Down.

          • Phillip in L.A.

            Outside-the-box thinking! I like it!!! 🙂

  • Halou

    He sexually assaulted women?

    Put that man in the White House! After all, it took Dear Donald less than a year to take the highest office in the land and defile it.

    I assume this is another success story of Liberty Council 😂

  • Linda Reid

    He doesn’t deserve anything after what he did to his for young sisters, he is only looking for a payday, it’s his own fault that he is in this mess, I guess your parents didn’t teach you how to keep your hands to yourself and keep it in your pants, you’re a disgrace to all the people who believe in God, we called that karma!!! And you deserve every little bit of that, you’re lucky you’re not in jail, god bless your wife and children, if you wore my husband I wouldn’t let you see or touch my children!!!! I have lost all respect for your family and you!!!!!!
