Missouri convention drops paper from lawsuit


JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (BP) — The Missouri Baptist Convention has dismissed its legal effort to recover the Word & Way, one of five corporations which broke from MBC control in 2001. Attorneys for the convention filed the “voluntary dismissal” in Cole County Circuit Court on April 23 pursuant to prior direction by the MBC executive board.

The voluntary dismissal ends the convention’s legal action against the former MBC newspaper. The dismissal became effective immediately upon filing and did not require any action by the court.
