Choristers To Court

By S. Siapha Mulbah (Cub Reporter)
The assigned Judge of the Civil Law Court “B” Scheaplor R. Dunbar, has ordered a Preliminary Injunction against 14 members of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World (PAW) choir.
The Writ named the choir members as Teranzo Sebo, J. Torbor Nyemah, Annie Russel, Victoria Moore, Margaret Nagbe, Elizabeth Dixon, Cece D. Wesseh, Esther Kofa, Evely T. Teah, Mary Dorkpoh Adrian Kieh, Martha Chea, and Lucy Fannieh.
Judge Dunbar ordered the choristers to stop all action(s) planned against Bishop Leo M. Simpson, the general overseer of the church, pending the determination of Bishop Simpson’s petition in the proceedings.
Preliminary Injunction is a provisional equitable remedy by which a court orders a litigant to perform, or refrain from performing, a particular act before the entry of final judgment.
The purpose of a preliminary injunction is to preserve the status quo and the rights of the parties until the issuance of a final judgment in the case.
“You are hereby ordered to stop all action(s) planned against the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World (PAW) by the choirs (respondents) pending the determination of the Bishop (petitioner) petition in the proceedings,” the order quoted.
The Writ further commanded the sheriff to issue a notice of Preliminary Injunction and Temporary Restraining Order to prohibit the choristers’ from disrupting the church’s activities and other activities in the name of the church pending the determination of the petitioner (Bishop Simpson) petition.
The Judge also commanded the choristers to file their answer or appear in court and if they fail to appear, a judgment by default will be rendered against them.
