Former star of "19 Kids and Counting" on TLC, Josh Duggar is now joining four of his sisters to sue the City of Springdale and Washington, Co in a breach-of-privacy lawsuit.
The sisters filed the lawsuit first because InTouch Weekly was able to obtain documents that listed their names in the molestation investigation against their brother, Josh. They were all minors at the time. InTouch obtained the info through a public-records request. The publishers of InTouch Weekly are included in the lawsuit, as well.
Jill, Jessa, Joy and Jinger say investigators promised that the records would remain confidential. The sisters say they have filed this lawsuit to protect other children under the same circumstances.
In the complaint filed by Josh Duggar, he says that the stories published caused him to "relive painful memories and experiences." His lawyer added that he "was also subject to the humiliation and extreme mental anguish of being publicly identified."
