Corey Corbin, a former member of Mt. Zion Baptist Church, filed a $5 million lawsuit on Thursday, claiming that Bishop Joseph Walker III ruined Corbin's marriage by sleeping with Corbin's former wife.
John Van Mol, a church spokesman, issued a statement on Thursday about both lawsuits.
"There is nothing new here. No matter how many times plaintiff's counsel re-hashes the same fabrications, the result will be the same -- unworthy of comment," the statement read.
The new suit names Walker, two of his assistants and the church as defendants. Corbin alleges he and his former wife, then newlyweds, went to see Bishop Walker for pastoral counseling back in 2000. After the counseling, Corbin alleges, Walker began a long-term affair with his wife, which led to their divorce in 2004.
