Federal judge permits racketeering suit against Mormon church
August 02, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: A former Mormon filed suit against the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, alleging that several of the church’s teachings involve misrepresentations; she also filed a RICO suit against the church, alleging misrepresentations in fundraising.
While a federal judge dismissed the former claim, he permitted the member’s RICO suit to proceed. RICO (the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) was enacted in 1970 against the Mafia.
