Josh Duggar drops intervention in sisters' lawsuit

  • DROPOUT: Josh Duggar withdraws from sisters' invasion of privacy case over reports about allegations of molestation against him.
Josh Duggar Friday dropped his intervention in a lawsuit filed by his sisters for invasion of privacy over release of reports about a family molestation allegation that led to articles in In Touch magazine.

Duggar made the request in a one-sentence motion that was promptly granted by federal Judge Timothy Brooks. Good move. Duggar's intervention had been widely panned. He was, after all, the person whose actions gave rise to the matter and seemed to be joining an effort to profit from it.

The docket reflects no other developments since the case filing. No trial is yet scheduled.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
