A third lawsuit has been filed against Bishop Eddie Long, alleging he coerced a man to have sex with him.
The third suit was filed Wednesday afternoon in DeKalb County Superior Court, said a spokeswoman for attorney B.J. Bernstein.
Jamal Paris, a member of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, filed the suit against Long, the church and the Longfellows Youth Academy Inc.
Long was not immediately available for comment Wednesday, but has scheduled a news conference for Thursday morning. On Tuesday, Long denied similar accusations.
Maurice Robinson and Anthony Flagg filed suits in DeKalb Tuesday alleging Long coerced them into having sex in exchange for trips, cars and cash. The plaintiffs say Long began having inappropriate relations with them when they were 16. They are seeking a trial by jury and unspecified damages. Long adamantly denies the allegations.
