(Capstone Report) — Russell Moore faces lawsuit for libel, false invasion of privacy, and intentional infliction of emotional distress for spreading alleged lies about SBC Pastor Mike Stone.

Mike Stone filed a defamation lawsuit against Russell Moore in US District Court in Nashville Monday, October 18, 2021. Stone claims Moore spread malicious information in retaliation for Stone’s investigation into the ERLC.

According to the lawsuit filing reviewed by the Capstone Report, “Defendant’s malicious campaign against Plaintiff was motivated in part by Defendant’s desire to retaliate against Plaintiff for his service on the aforementioned task force of the Executive Committee and to compromise its investigation into the ERLC by obfuscating pertinent facts.”

Stone claims Russell Moore’s targeted release of two false letters were an intentional action to harm Stone’s reputation prior to the election of the Southern Baptist Convention president.
