The 18-page complaint seeking $100 million to compensate for damage to Willie Jessop's excavating business is really a fascinating read, with more detail from him on what caused his break with/expulsion from the church and on the nighttime break-in at his business.

(Read the part where Lyle Jeffs allegedly threatens to publicly accuse Willie of adultery, then Willie claims that he knows that Lyle Jeffs and another church leader fathered children with wives who had been reassigned to them — after the women were supposed to have been back with their original husbands. Drama.)

It'll be interesting to see how this suit goes down. Think we'll see a legal response from the other side?
