LITIGATION UPDATE

 

Worthy State Deputies:

 

We are pleased to share that today a jury issued a verdict in the case of List Interactive (UKnight) vs. Knights of Columbus and found that the bulk of the plaintiffs’ claims had no merit. Despite seeking more than $100 million, the plaintiffs were awarded $500,000 by the jury.

 

As testimony and evidence during the trial revealed, the plaintiffs sought in this contract case to concoct a narrative about the manner and intent behind the way the Knights track its membership numbers. We defended ourselves vigorously against these false claims because we believe we owe it to the men who volunteer their time as members of this organization and to the many people who give generously to our charities to remove any doubt about the honesty, character and integrity of our organization.

 

We commend the jury for seeing this for what it was—a garden variety contract case.

 

Fraternally,

 

Mark McMullen

Senior VP, Membership & Fraternal Mission
