Former Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr. is suing the university, claiming he was wrongly ousted from the presidency, NBC News reported.
Falwell filed a complaint in state court in Lynchburg, Va., that alleges the university defamed him and breached his contract. The complaint does not state a specific dollar amount sought in damages.
“Mr. Falwell has suffered damage to his reputation, damage to his profession, humiliation, and anguish; lost business opportunities; and suffered other pecuniary damage,” the complaint said.
A university spokesperson declined to comment but said Thursday the university had not yet been served with the lawsuit, according to NBC.
