Lawsuit Against Josh Duggar Dismissed

Josh and Anna Duggar in 2013
We have received a number of questions from readers regarding the lawsuit filed against Josh Duggar last year by a woman (the "Plaintiff") who claimed to have been assaulted by him and requested $500,000 in damages.

The details of the lawsuit are not family-friendly, so we will not be posting them to our blog, nor do we encourage our readers to research the matter.

In late January, the Plaintiff requested that the case by withdrawn "without prejudice," as she wanted to have the option to file a new complaint based on the same occurrences. Josh and his attorney refused the offer.

On Friday, both parties signed to allow the case to be dismissed "with prejudice," which means the Plaintiff cannot file another complaint based on the same occurrences. Likewise, Josh agreed not to request the Court to rule that the allegations made against him were false.

**To those who have accused TLC or the Duggar family of paying the Plaintiff off to dismiss the case, part of the agreement required the Plaintiff to agree that she "will bear her own costs and fees in this matter and that no one has or will pay her any money to resolve this matter."

      Unfortunately, it's not over. This doesn't dismiss the fact that he spent thousands of dollars of money that he could've give to the church, or used for his family, on websites that catered to people who want to cheat on their spouses. He has a beautiful, loving, caring wife that any man would do anything for, and all he did in his spare time was to look for ways to cheat on her. Just because this one person and this one lawsuit was proved false does nothing to recover his tarnished image. I really don't think you should post any more updates on Josh on this website. There are so many other family members that we never hear about that we're interested in. Please focus on them.

    4. Well--my concern is people are going to lose the big picture here. Her lying does not excuse Josh Duggar's behavior. He still committed adultery and admitted to a porn addiction. The damage has still been done to his marriage.

      Delete
    5. Which is between Josh and his wife Anna and no one else!!!!!!!

    6. I totally agree. Hatin and commenting awful things doesn't help anything. Keep praying for them and let Anna move on in peace.

    7. Exactly, HIS marriage, none of our business, lets wish Anna and Josh and their children, the strength to overcome this ordeal. And for the rest of the world to stop being so judgemental, we are none of us perfet. It is for God and God alone to judge.

      Delete
    8. Everyone has problems, there are many people suffering porn addiction and cheating on their spouses. TV shows actually glorify sex and adultery.
      Josh was tempted and failed. He needs prayers for healing and forgiveness from his sins. If it was a rock star like miley, he would be praised and followed like miley is.
      HIS Wife Has Chosen To Forgive, Maybe It Is Time YOU SHOULD Too and Pray FOR him

    9. Let God sort it out and tend to your business.

    10. Amen lets move on. Time to go forward.

    11. There are marriages that have gone through similar things as Josh and Anna's and survived with God at the head. It will be hard for them but not impossible.

      Delete
    12. I don't think anyone is going to let Josh and Anna forget the "big picture". Ever. And the damage done to his marriage is only Anna's concern.

      Delete
    13. Well Anonymous see that is the thing it isn't your concern. It is Anna's concern. THEIR MARRIAGE, THEIR BUSINESS and she will decide what is best for HER/THEIR family. It is between Anna, Josh & God.

      Delete
    14. Damage has been done, but that is for them to work out. I hope and pray that they can work it out to the glory of God and for the good of their family.

    15. Leave to the LORD and Anna Duggar what is there business.
      If you really care pray for them otherwise this blog seems to me is meant to encourage.

    16. IT IS NOW A PERSONAL ISSUE FOR THE FAMILY TO HANDLE WITHOUT OUR COMMENTS OTHER THAN TO SEND SOME PRAYERS FOR THEIR FAMILY.

    17. have not you heard that God has forgiven him so who are you to make a statement like this are you so wholey that you do no wrong letus let him get back to repairing his life and getvhis marrage back on track may God have mercy on you

      Delete
    18. Nobody said that it excuses Josh Dugger's behavior, but there are some things we do not know. Has Josh sincerely repented and asked God to forgive him? If God forgives his sins, those sins are buried in the sea of God's forgetfulness. Unfortunately some people will never forget although all of us have sinned. (Let him that is without sin cast the first stone.) Also, we do not know whether or not he has asked for, and received, his wife's forgiveness. Whether or not, they will try to salvage their marriage is between the two of them.

      Delete
    19. My concern is that people are worrying too much about the Duggers and not enough about themselves. Jesus said: "Let him that is without sin cast the first stone".

    20. Only is Anna can not forgive him. This is non of our business. Prayers Anna for your tough decision

    23. But their marriage is for Anna and Josh to work on not everyone else....if she chooses to forgive and trust him again that is totally up to her not the public.....let THEM deal with their marriage!

    24. I think it is time everyone but out of their business this is between them and GOD. He has asked for forgiveness and GOD forgives. Let them get on with their lives. GOD BLESS you both and your family. Love and Prayers

    25. Good News! Now they can move forward, no, it doesn't excuse him but it's not good for our health to dwell on the negative forever!

      Delete
    26. Have any of you ever heard of grace. God has given it to us so we in turn can give it to others. Josh and Anna have went through the mill and if she forgive him then we must let it be. All I know that its better nowbecause they are young than when they get 35 years into their marriage and this happen. I pray God bless them and give them Godly wisdom to do what is best for them and their family, I mean their children. I know I have hadto keep secrets from family members regarding a relationship, but God is good and He is a healer, so be it. Thank you very much

    29. To the first Anonymous,

      Right, let's all stay willfully ignorant!!!

      Delete
    30. Yes, he committed adultery and admitted to a porn addiction. You are correct in also stating that damage has been done to his marriage. But the fact still stands that despite the interest everybody has in the details of their family and marriage it is still a marriage between two flawed human beings and hopefully God. Anna is determined to allow God to heal their marriage and I think that we should all just let them be flawed and do what is best for their marriage and their family!

      Delete
    31. It is theirs to work out. Let them be, and pray for them. Marriages have survived much worse, and trust me, they are not alone in this matter. Believers should pray for others, and forgive. God's mercy is new every morning, and so should ours be...

      Delete
    32. Her lying? Whose lying? Charges can be dropped when a woman doesn't want her name dragged through the mud on television even if the accusations are true. There is no need to imagine she was lying. Almost all accusers, statistically, are telling the truth.

      Delete
    33. I second that!!

      Delete
    34. God is in the healing of life's. We are all sinners saved by Grace. Let no one boast least the trouble comes to your doorstep. We are commanded to love one another so let us pray for Josh and Anna and their marriage with those 4 little ones needing both of them. Divorce destroys families. Let us not let the enemy destroy them but to give them a new desire to love God and each other. So, Josh and Anna I am praying for you and your family May God apply the balm of Gilead to your marriage.

      Delete
    35. She admitted she was lying.

      Delete
    36. The porn star doesn't want her name drug through the mud. Lol

      Delete
    37. Let's give it a rest!! If God and Anna can forgive Josh (not to mention the girls) then who are we to pass judgement? No one is perfect and we ALL have skeletons in our closet.

      Delete
    38. Somehow I think in this situation, given the woman's occupation, she's probably not all that concerned about bad publicity.

      Delete
    39. If you read other accounts of this story it is said that she accused him of doing this on a certain date in Philadelphia. It was confirmed that he was not anywhere near Philadelphia on that date. That is why the case was dropped. I'd love for every one to review their world. Please let us know if you have never sinned against your spouse. Also, in Gods eyes all sins are the same.

    41. I think everybody just needs to drop it! It's old news....good grief how would you feel if you messed up and the whole world found out about it and just kept running it in the ground.???? To all the people that just can't seem to let old wounds heal, I wish you would. He's human! People mess up from time to time. No one is his judge but God. He will answer for what he's done so it's not any ones business to judge him or tell his wife what she should or shouldn't do. I respect her 100% for the way she is dealing with this situation. Be careful what you say because you reap what you sew.

    42. Really I know people talk when something big goes down like what josh has done. But really would each and everyone of you want every thing you've ever done written on a wall for everyone to see. Duh! Of course he wouldn't have admitted to adultery until the Madison acct came out. But whoever did this to him and dug till they found something to destroy him will pay for that just like he will answer for the way he's done. Drop it! It's old news! And no one is his judge but God!

    43. She was lying as the charges were dropped when it was proven he wasn't in the city that the accusations were taking place. It was obvious she lied.

    45. He who is without sin, cast the first stone.. If you can, you are deceiving yourself.. God forgives, God saves and God makes all things new when we trust Him to be God in our lives as Anna is doing.. Jesus, forgive us for how we behave before a dying lost world and let the light that is in the face of Jesus Christ, penetrate the darkness so others would know Jesus is the answer and the only true way to God..

    46. not true, I've know many accusers that were lying. She was a prostitute who didn't reveal anything until after everything came out.

      Delete
    47. Well. I wasn't there and I certainly do not know what happened or what did not happen. I do know Josh is ripe for these kind of accusations right now. He made some mistakes, big ones. As have I. Not going to throw any stones his way. Looks like his family and his wife are working towards forgiveness and healing - which is a lesson we can all learn from. Forgiveness is freedom - learn from this everyone!

      Delete
    48. I had already seen this on another website - which stated evidence was presented showing Josh was somewhere far removed at the time the plaintiff alleged the incident occurred. In other words, he could not be guilty because he was physically not present. The plaintiff did not want to drop the charges, but it was impossible to continue when it was clearly shown that the plaintiff had lied. While I agree with your statement that statistically almost all accusers in these situations are telling the truth, the plaintiff in this case, clearly has told at least a partial falsehood.

      Delete
    49. I don't think what Josh has done will ever be forgotten. The family needs to get off television and out of the public eye for the sake of the children, especially Anna and Josh's children.

    1. Totally agree with you she's the one selling herself in the first place not that I'm defending Josh's act's but she should also be looked into for prostitution she's here trying to justify herself saying the money was given as a gift well I wonder how many gifts like that she's receives a week..

    2. I hope this chapter of the Duggar family can be closed and those involved can move on to a fresh new start. God is good at implimenting such things, especially when people realize their need of repentance, God's love and forgiveness, and the clean slate offered thru the shed blood of Jesus Christ. My prayer for the Duggars is that they all will learn to abide in Christ, stay close to the teachings of Scripture, and not of man.

      Delete
    3. As long as the Duggars choose to do interviews, speaking engagements and continuously post to social media sites; they are the ones whom select to NOT be private or peaceful. I agree with you; they should step into their own private world and work out these problems how they see fit.

    5. no, the woman actually admitted she lied once she was presented with the proof. when i heard about the lawsuit, the first thing i noticed which didnt seem right was she said she didnt know josh was married, however, she met him through a site targeted for married people. i'm sure i wasnt the only one who noticed her inconsistency. i certainly hope this will be the end of for him.

      Delete
    6. Evidence was presented to the judge showing that Josh was nowhere near the plaintiff at the time the plaintiff alleged the incident happened. So, No, the plaintiff isn't receiving compensation for anything. Case has been dismissed.

  12. I'm glad the lawsuit is over. I think it will help them both move forward. I am curious though as to how much longer he will be in rehab. Seems like such a long time to be away from his kids.

    1. I'm wondering what they told the kids to explain Daddy's long absence. Someday, they'll be able to find out for themselves. Heartbreaking to find out that your parents lied to you at some point. Josh sure created a pickle for his whole family.

    2. He has been gone less than our military soldiers are gone from their children to serve and protect this country. Just sayin...

      Delete
    3. At least if you're gong in the military, you can be honest with your kids about what you were doing. I doubt Josh can tell the truth to his kids, making this even more tragic.

      Delete
    4. He did wrong to his own sisters. He has to stay there as long as it takes for him not to be a threat to his wife or daughters anymore. This kind of desease takes a long time and a lot of help to heal. Be patient.

    5. I agree. We are all sinners and no I don't condone what Josh did, he isn't the first to cheat, etc. and he won't be the last. He's getting help, and how he and his family deal with it is their business. Not ours. I know it's hard, because they were a t-v reality show, but privacy is much needed in this matter. Let's all just say a prayer for them and not criticize. No one is perfect.

    6. I wish I could find my notes with the biblical references but my pastor from years ago said that a white lie and adultery are equally offensive to God.

      Delete
    7. You can't just move on from something as awful as what Josh has done. Porn addiction is very difficult to overcome. He only " confessed" to cheating when the Ashley Maddison account was published for all to see--not out of a humble or contrite spirit. I think Josh has a lifetime of learning to be sly as Jessa called it--and getting away without any real consequences. Time will tell if he really is a changed man.

      Delete
    8. Let's now sugar coat this. A White Lie ("Why no, those pants don't make you look fat!") and Adultery may be the same in God's eyes, but their ramifications here on earth are not the same.

I say this because if the claims were true she want her day in court. Josh hope you have seen the errors in your ways and Honor your family as God commands us

    ReplyDelete
  34. In this situation, I fear that people will lose sight of the truth....Josh committed adultery and there is something truly wrong in their marriage. He still cared so little about his wife, that he sought out women to cheat with on websites. Also, please keep in mind that just because the charges were dropped doesn't mean it didn't happen.

    ReplyDelete
  35. She did what she intended to do, which was drag the Duggar name through the mud and make the family look horrible. Truth be known he never laid a had on her. It's awful that people are so hungry for money that they will do anything for it. Which is why the bible says it's the root of all evil. I pray the Duggar family gets through all theses trial and tribulations soon. God bless them all.

  38. All sin is an offense against the holy God of the universe. All sin is equal in the eyes of God. All sin deserves separation from God for all eternity. We as humans "rank" sin and say one sin is worse than another. Yes, different sins will have different and more severe consequences here on earth. But ultimately every sin is equal because any sin separates us from God and breaks the relationship. Thankfully a Sovereign, Loving, Caring God chose to make a way through his Son to redeem us from our sin and allow us to be reconciled to him again. Thank you Jesus! Hope this helps you understand what Connie was saying.
    Blessing!

  44. The Duggar family has been in the public eye. The rest of us do not have a bunch of people trying to find dirt on us. The Lord said: "There is none good. No, not one." And all of us know darned well that we sin everyday. Sin is sin, to God. There is no better or worse sin. None of us are better than Josh, not in God's eyes. I think we all ought to be thankful that our daily sins are not broadcast to everyone.

  45. I am glad for the family's sake that this aspect of the situation has come to a close. I will continue to pray for all of you!

  46. I just want to clarify that 1. No, they did not pay her off. 2. She has reportedly stated that "she lied" about any encounter with Josh Duggar. 3. He has documents that prove he was not even in the same state as her as she reported that he was on 2 separate occasions. 4. Thus, she withdrew her case since she was lying.
    I personally feel that women that cry rape and then are found to be lying should be charged. Laws need to be changed.
    This just happened this week to a former sports player who was in prison for 6 years and now the accused rape victim recanted her story. The judge has now released him.
    This behavior from women discredits actual rape and abuse victims.
    Josh has his issues, but this isn't one of them.

    1. She didn't cry rape. She said it was consensual. Obviously that appears to be a lie. Unfortunately Josh put himself in a position that needed defending against such allegations. Both have lied--only Josh seems to have been given any grace or empathy on this blog. Doesn't she deserve as much forgiveness as Josh? After all I have read over and over on here he who is without sin cast the first stone.

  47. I am so happy for yall that the lawsuit was dismissed it must be a huge relief! Always remember to put God first in your life and trust Him no matter what( Proverbs3:5-6)

  48. Yes, the entire situation is a very sad one. But, when someone wants to take advantage of an already sad situation and lie to make money, it makes it all the more sad (and sick). They proved that Josh wasn't even in the town that this woman alleged the events took place in. She should be prosecuted. It doesn't minimize what Josh did, but he did not commit this crime. I am happy for Anna and the children.

  49. I love how the blessings pore in if you are a claimed Christian but we should all remember. God gave pity to those who were lost and needed to found. Why can we all leave everyone in the news alone and let them all have their space. If you claim Jesus name you better be ready to answer WHY when you doing something publicly wrong. They display their whole lives on TV. We should hold our fellow Christian accountable.

  54. Not our place to judge someone of their sins.We do far better if we look at OUR OWN sins and learn to ask for forgiveness and turn away from those sins. I like the Duggar Families and support their way of life.Good luck Josh and Anna.We all live and learn.God bless us all

  55. Curious that the case was dismissed, that seems like a here nor there conclusion. But I am happy that a family can continue on the right path with closure behind them.

    1. That Josh did not hold out for acknowledgement of her making false accusations on the record can be viewed in two ways. So it does seem neither here nor there. Some of the other comments say she lied and Josh can prove it so that gives more definition and explains it more if that is correct information. Some how it makes him seem less wrong, having had some one exploit the situation, if that is the case.

  56. This is a Blog to support the Duggars not try and distroy the Duggars or their faith. Don't cast a stone unless you yourself are sin-less. Clean out your own backyard before judging others... remember when pointing a finger at one there are 3 fingers pointing back at you...
    God Bless you and have a wonderful day.

  57. What people do not seem to get the concept of is it does not matter if he had an addiction or not! Do you actually realize how many men out there (religious or not) has a porn addiction??? Just because the are on tv does not make it more right or wrong... there are MANY CASES of drug addictions, abortions, people with tons of children etc out there. But let's just bash the celebrities because we have nothing else to do with our time k?? *shakes my head* I have always loved the duggars. Was always an entertaining show. I love the recipes you can catch there also. These allegations make me like them even more because it tells me they are just as normal as anyone else just 3 times the size..

  60. I'm not excusing Josh for everything that he did, but if his wife wants to save their marriage is her problem, it's easy to judge other people and point their mistakes, one question do we judge ourselves the same way? I know I have made tons of mistakes because I'm not perfect, in 19 years of marriage I've struggle, I've worked with our issues that doesn't mean that I have a horrible marriage, it simple say that we are humans and we make mistakes, whoever is free of sin throw the rock....

  63. You know it is their marriage and what goes on in other marriages is just as bad, no one is excused from sin, but also it is free will and also their decision on what they want to do with all of this.. allot of the problem was being in Washington D.C. and all the corruption around him instead of family, peers let you see a different lifestyle and how to get by with it.. There is allot out there and temptation abounds, so no judgement here, allot is going on in your life but not publicized, so they just need to keep things lowkey and hope that he gets the help he does need and can overcome this, it won't be the last for any family their life is more out there to be judged..

  66. The saying ignorance is bliss seems to be true among many people on here. As a survivor of rape by my cousin.. I can tell you it isn't over. Speaking of his sisters now. ... I didn't even remember what happened to me until after my mother died. Probably because my cousin said he would kill my parents if I told them.. but my life was forever changed. I can't say I agree with Anna's decision to stay in the marriage. The risk is too great for those precious little girls.. and that is who I pray for.

  67. I say leave them be. Josh has been in rehab and the bible says "who that is WITHOUT SIN cast the first stone". So any of you who have never sinned keep on talking smack.

    1. It's not about being "with out sin". Of course we all have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God. But it's as one person said it is simplistic to say a sin is a sin is a sin. Josh has a clear history of sexual deviancy. His daughters protection should be of utmost importance and priority. That's not judging or unforgiveness. It's the plain truth.

    2. Then what did Josh admit to when he said he was not faithful to his wife? He had the online accounts to meet women. His house in Ark. promptly changed title right after this came out. He disappeared for "rehab." Something happened somewhere. Someone knows something. Is another shoe going to drop?

  71. I feel terrible for Anna. I don't know if Josh will ever be "cured" because he came forward to his wife when he got caught, not because he felt remorse for his actions. I cringe to think how long this would have continued if he did not get caught.

    And I could never ever be intimate with the man that did unspeakable things with other women and broke vows in our marriage. I could never again be joyfully available to my husband because all I would be able to think of would be the other women and what he did with them.

    I really hope that Anna is 100% okay with her decisions. Forgiving because you want to and forgiving because you feel you have to are two different things.

  72. God is in the forgiveness business it's the nature of God he knows that man is going to sin but he will forgive if we ask with a humble heart. All those who are saying all the negative things should pray for this great family and not judge it is not our job it's Gods and he will restore when asked with a humble heart.

  73. ok people. josh has done wrong and he knows he has done wrong. he is getting the help he needs. the family has gone through a lot. now why can't we all leave them alone. I love this family.

  74. To Anonymois #6- I am not remaining ignorant but what would you have me do? We know what Josh did- but isn't that an issue between he, Anna and God? Rehashing it over and over again in a public forum does not solve anything. Let them live their lives.

  79. I find people on this blog equate common sense to mean unforgiveness. If Josh is truly repentant then of course his sins are forgiven. However, commen sense dictates he can not be assumed to be trusted. Anna and their children should never--ever--forget what Josh has done. That sets up a cycle of unaccountability and abuse. Forgiveness? Absolutely!! Accountability? I sure hope so.

  80. I wonder what Jesus was writing in the sand when the woman was neing accused of committing adultery. Maybe he was writing all the sins of those who was accusing her. Those who live in glass houses shouldn't thtow stones. I know there are rhings in my past that only my family knows. God has forgiven me. Jesus died on the cross to save me. If u have a spotless past go on with your attacks. I personally believe this is between the family josh and Jesus. How would u feel if your worst was brought up for the world to see. Jesus is about compassion how about we show some.

    1. That was uncalled and harsh. Don't forget Josh was playing in the same dirty money business while espousing Christian living. My heart breaks for Miss Dillion. What was so broken in her that she turned to that business? Didn't Jesus say there is more rejoicing in Heaven when one sinner repents ? She, too, is created in Gods image. I see two broken souls and a loving Savior going after both of them.
