Lawsuit to Recover Damages for Crimes Against The Temple
The Temple as a 501c3 Organization has a responsibility as a public trust to take all appropriate legal actions to protect itself and to recover the extensive damages it has suffered as a result of the criminal activities perpetrated against it. It is a horrible civil and criminal violation for people to misuse the law and freedoms of speech to defraud and steal for their own personal gain.
This is why on February 21, 2020 Wat Lao Buddhavong filed a complaint against 7 individuals who had and continue to conspire against the Temple, it's monks, and faithful members that make up the community.
We sincerely hope that this lawsuit will serve to guide and inspire all to act and speak appropriately, respectfully, and in compliance with the law. We also hope that this lawsuit will inspire those who have undertaken to steal from the Temple to right their wrongs, help to make it whole, and help heal the pain they have created in the community.
