The preliminary ruling for Grenier & Grenier v. Taylor & Grenier is now public, and it is so far a triumph for the rights of bloggers and abuse survivors everywhere: “Allegations of conduct which would violate the trust his church members and members of the public place in him as a church leader are matters of public discussion or controversy.”
A team of volunteers has put together a significant resource on the lawsuit of Grenier & Grenier v. Taylor & Grenier — the Grenier Defamation Lawsuit Archive. This Archive is based on a similar one produced by Brad Sargent after the 2012 case of Beaverton Grace Bible Church v. Smith. According to Alex Grenier’s volunteer team: “The Archive writers and editors have sought to be as factual and fair as possible in presenting historical events and in representing all sides accurately.”

Pastor Bob Grenier of Calvary Chapel Visalia (CCV), California, is suing Tim Taylor of Visalia and also one of his own step-sons, Alex Grenier of Idaho. The defendants view this as a legal maneuver to intimidate and silence them and others from speaking out against sexual abuse, physical abuse, and ecclesiastical corruption they allege he perpetrated.
