* A Tennessee court ruled that the statute of limitations barred a former youth pastor from suing his former church following his conviction and imprisonment for child molestation. A man (Eric) lost his job as a youth leader and Sunday School teacher at a church after his arrest for aggravated sexual battery and solicitation of a minor. Eric was found guilty and sentenced to jail. He appealed his conviction, claiming that his arrest was in retaliation for his reports of sexual abuse against other leaders of his church. A trial court dismissed the lawsuit because it had been filed after the statute limitations had expired. A state appeals court agreed, and rejected Eric's contention that the prison law library had inadequate resources to apprise him of the statute of limitations. Simmons v. Gath Baptist Church, 109 S.W.3d 370 (Tenn. 2003).
