Mat Staver Leaves Liberty University

There’s some interesting news about Liberty Counsel chairman Mat Staver:

Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. announced the resignation of Dean Mathew Staver Monday. Staver has been an integral part of the law school since its inception a decade ago. Staver says the decision will allow him to spend more time with his wife, who is receiving specialized medical attention in Florida after a car accident over a year ago. He will continue to serve as a consultant and advisor to the law school and to President Falwell.

You might that in 2012, Staver and Liberty University were named in a RICO lawsuit filed by the lesbian mother of a child who was kidnapped to Central America rather than share custody. (Tipped by JMG reader Scott)
