Lawsuit Over LDS Welfare Benefits Dismissed
(Newsline briefs: Man's suit against his bishop dismissed)
Deseret News 29Apr00 D1

PROVO, UTAH -- A lawsuit filed in small claims court over LDS welfare benefits was dismissed on Friday when the claimant failed to show up in court. Sherwin Koyle had claimed that his bishop failed to pay his mortgage payments.

The filed lawsuit asks for $3,000 that Koyle says he needs to get his home out of foreclosure. Koyle told the court in his filing that his bishop had been paying his mortgage payments from LDS Church welfare funds, but stopped making the payments and failed to notify him that they had stopped. Payments on the mortgage fell four months behind before the foreclosure.

Koyle had earlier asked the judge to continue the case until he could find an attorney to assist him, but on Friday the judge dismissed the case. Koyle has 10 days to appeal the decision.
