Motion to Disqualify Attorney David Gibbs III

February 18, 2016

On February 5, 2016, Bill Gothard filed a motion to disqualify David Gibbs III as the attorney for the plaintiffs. Supported by a lengthy affidavit and exhibits, the motion asserts that Attorney Gibbs acted as one of Mr. Gothard’s attorneys for several months in 2015 in efforts to be reinstated to IBLP and on matters related to allegations in this lawsuit. The motion claims that Gibbs is now ethically disqualified from representing the plaintiffs because of serious conflicts of interest.

Yesterday, February 17th, the Institute filed its own motion in support of the disqualification of David Gibbs asserting unethical behavior in violation of the Illinois Rules of Professional Conduct. The motion requests the court to disqualify Mr. Gibbs, but to give the plaintiffs time to obtain a different lawyer to pursue any claims they may have.

On the same day, Attorney Gibbs filed a second amended complaint, but the motions to disqualify will be considered and ruled on by the court before it is determined whether the case will proceed.

Scripture reminds us that the first person to state his cause seems right, but a matter must be searched out to determine the truth (Proverbs 18:17). This will take time, but that is the goal.
