Jury Finds Teaching Home Editor Conspired to Restrain Trade

Defendants Gregg Harris, Mary Pride, Sue Welch Settled

[News page]

A unanimous jury in a federal court in Tacoma, Washington has found that The Teaching Home editor Sue Welch conspired to restrain trade in violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act. Prior to the trial Welch's co-defendants Gregg Harris, Christian Home Educators of Ohio and its then-chairperson, and Bill and Mary Pride settled with plaintiff Gentle Spirit publisher and editor Cheryl Lindsey Seelhoff. In her original complaint Seelhoff alleged various causes of action including defamation, slander, intentional infliction of emotional distress, intentional interference with commerce, and violation of  the Sherman Antitrust Act.

Cheryl's public statement is available on the site of W.H.E.N. (Washington Home Educators Network) at http://www.homestead.com/WaHomeEdNet/Lawsuit.html. A volunteer has been copying the court documents related to the case and is making them available on the Internet at http://members.aol.com/hsingcase/index.html. As of this writing the documents are incomplete. If HEIR learns of links to public statements by other parties to the suit we plan to make them available also.
