    Post Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed By Sheri Coleman's Family

    The attorneys representing Sheri Coleman's family filed a lawsuit to prevent Christopher Coleman from being able to profit from her death in any way or selling anything the family believes to be Sheri Coleman's from their marriage. They want to protect her interests. All funds acquired from this lawsuit are to be used for building a memorial to Sheri Coleman and her sons.

    Please post everything pertaining to the lawsuit here:

    On Tuesday, a St. Clair County judge ruled that over 400 pages of documents from Christopher Coleman’s former employee Joyce Meyer Ministries must be released with no promise of confidentiality in the wrongful death lawsuit brought against Chris Coleman by Sheri Coleman’s family.

    Documents in Coleman case to be turned over to lawyers

    More than 400 pages of Joyce Meyer Ministries documents filed in a wrongful death lawsuit against former employee Christopher Coleman will be released Thursday to plaintiff's lawyers, but not to the public.

    The documents were at the Monroe County Circuit Clerk's office Tuesday being copied. They will be placed under seal until 2 p.m. Thursday, when they are set to be released to Jack Carey, the attorney who represents murder victim Sheri Coleman's mother and brother in the wrongful death lawsuit filed against Christopher Coleman.

    "Discovery is no longer filed with the court," Carey explained Tuesday. "The court files just became too voluminous to handle all those documents. The documents are only entered into the court record if there's a dispute."

    Carey and Enrico Mirabelli, Sheri Coleman's cousin and Carey's co-counsel, said Monday they would not have a "wholesale distribution" of the documents.

    Coleman, the former personal bodyguard of televangelist Joyce Meyer, faces three counts of first-degree murder in the ligature strangulations of his 31-year-old wife and their sons, Gavin, 9, and Garrett, 11. They were found dead May 5 in their beds at their Columbia home.

    Joyce Meyer Ministries was named as a "respondent in discovery" which means the ministry isn't a party to the lawsuit, but must provide the information Carey and Mirabelli need to investigate their claim against Coleman.

    Is this saying we'll get to see them on Thursday afternoon???

    So let me get this straight...The family's lawyers will get the documents which JMM asked for them not to get, but since they don't have to be filed then they cannot release them to the public. Right? I am confused now! LOL

    I suppose this is something JMM is quite concerned with at this point:

    If the lawyers' investigation were to reveal Joyce Meyer Ministries liable in any way for the deaths of Sheri, Garett or Gavin Coleman, the lawyers could name the ministry as a defendant in the lawsuit, Beyler said.

    Not unless you're the plaintiff's attorney!

    Hmmmm... I AM looking for employment. I'm sure they need help with this case. Think I can get hired by Thursday afternoon?

    Did the judge ORDER it can't be released to the public? When the civil suit attorneys gained access to the house, they weren't shy about sharing the info with the public on that day!!!

    Good question! But the way it's worded, and because JMM was complaining about confidentiality, I think it might just be the attorneys. Oh, and I wish you could get a job there by Thursday! MOO

    Hello m'dear CassiusSleuth, good to see you hanging out here,

    You asked whether RC has turned over his documents.

    According to this article dated 7/21/09:

    >>An attorney representing Sheri Coleman’s family in a wrongful death case said he still hasn’t received discovery documents from Ronald Coleman, the father of Christopher Coleman.

    “I’ll decide what to do after I get the discovery matter handled with Joyce Meyer Ministries,” said Jack Carey, the lawyer representing Sheri Coleman’s family.<<

    and

    >>Carey said on Monday that Ronald Coleman had not provided the requested information.<<

    MY GOSH! This just makes me so unhappy! The Bible says to obey the laws of the land and yet neither one of these ministries is even handing a dog a bone.

    Weiss family submits 2nd set of interrogatories to JMM

    http://www.stltoday.com/stltoday/new...A?OpenDocument

    http://www.stltoday.com/blogzone/st-...-coleman-info/

    http://www.stltoday.com/blogzone/st-...questions2.pdf (interrogatories) - 28 days to answer from "date of service"-since no certificate of service is attached, as is customary, one can use the fax date noted at the top of each page of August 13 and assume answers due on September 10

    I have to quote a poster on the Dispatch site - because they've said it so succinctly:

    I think the most pertinent information from the interrogatories that would be beneficial in a suit are:
    (a)Did JMM conduct an investigation of threats received
    (b)Identify the individual(s)who was/were responsible for the investigation of the threat(s)
    (c) Identify the individual(s)who was/were responsible for making the threats
    (d)Describe what action(s) were taken to investigate the threat(s)

    Because had the original threat sent by CC to JM on her JMM computer (stating Sheri and the boys would die in their sleep) been thoroughly and properly investigated, It would have been traced back to CC and Sheri and the boys deaths may have been prevented. IMO

    Thanks to Foreveryoung1 - As I've stated from the beginning, this is the very heart of the matter. CC answered to someone. . .there should be no problem clearing this up IF the investigation was done. . .
    Everything I say is Only My Opinion along with a bunch of links to public information - for me, that's what sleuthing is all about!

    It's my theory that the threats were not followed up on by the CPD because Justin Barlow was a friend and neighbor, and perhaps a small town police force might think that Barlow would either find the threatener (he took steps in that direction with the camera), or that Barlow would personally tell Chris, "Look, Chris, we know who the threatener is, and if he wises up he won't do it again and everything will just blow over. We don't know why the threatener did what he did, Chris, but the police are hoping that whatever problems the guy has, that he takes it to his pastor or maybe a counselor. Do we understand each other, pal?"

    It's not at all far-fetched to think that CPD wouldn't want to arrest a guy for making threats against his own family, for reasons that male cops might in some small way sympathize with: [I]she might have been a *****, maybe she was going to take the money and the kids, she gets the gold mine, he gets the shaft, maybe he went a little overboard but women can really push buttons--that sort of thing.

    Arrest a guy for being a little over the top in a domestic dispute--and cut off the family income? Let the wolf in at the door? That would be crueler than arresting CC!

    No, let's handle this one intramurally. Coleman's a security guy, he knows he can't do this kind of thing and keep getting away with it. We'll just put a little fear in him, and his domestic troubles will either go away (problem solved!) or end up in divorce court (not a CPD problem!).

    And then over at JMM things are locked up tight and the CPD doesn't have an "in" there. Let them figure it out. They've got the wherewithal and the money. The CPD has other, better things to do with its time.

    A little departmental hubris, preoccupation, and men protecting other men. Justin Barlow will handle it, he knows Chris. Chris is just a nebbish, the cops think he's about as lethal as a cap pistol. They've seen his type all the time. Nothing they can't handle should he get out of line. But Barlow will put him straight, lives right by him, Coleman won't get away with anything. CPD isn't like them there big-city police departments, we use psychology, we're smarter than that, we're like Andy Griffith. Everbody's friends here, some just need a good talking to is all. We're on top of it.

    Can't wait to hear more details about how the CPD handled this. I'm willing to predict it was handled just as I described.

    VCD, although your theory on how CC was handled might very well be the case, it sickens me to think about it in light of all the domestic violence going on in this country right now.
