F or a year now, attorney BJ Bernstein has steered one of the highest profile, most controversial lawsuits in Georgia: the sexual misconduct lawsuits against Bishop Eddie Long. Now, Bernstein and her co-counsel Jay Sadd and Katherine Hernacki have informed their clients they have a potential conflict of interest and are withdrawing from the case. Their concerns for a potential “conflict of interest”, surface after, Bishop Long’s attorneys filed a demand against, Jamal Parris, Spencer LaGrande and Centino Kemp, to recover damages in the case for violation of the settlement. Bishop Long’s attorneys are demanding arbitration. The reason: they contend the three young men intentionally violated their settlement agreement in other media interviews and on Twitter.
Bishop Long’s attorneys argued that Jamal Parris and Spencer LaGrande violated their agreement when they did an interview discussing the case with the Atlanta Journal Constitution and WSB-TV interviews that re-appeared on CNN. Centino Kemp violated his agreement on Twitter. Lawyers argue that back in August Kemp tweeted “I got (f—–) by the Devil Himself” and then wrote in a separate tweet “I was literally your hooker” and then wrote in a separate tweet @BishopEddieLong, “why that’s all i want to know” His attorneys argue that they can recover “$300,000 per violation” and that there is “no cap” on the amount of damages they can recoup.
