Courthouse News Service, reports that the pastor gave Sprint specific and strict orders not to release his phone records to anyone, including his wife, Diane, who had suspicions that Mr. Mimms was having an affair.
Believing his wife was spying on him, the pastor of the Freedom Tabernacle of Praise Church in Indianapolis, told employees of the telecommunications company “to not allow anyone to have access to his account except for him.” The paranoid Bishop did this, not once, but twice, also demanding that Sprint “shut down the Internet access to his account.”
A determined first lady arrived at the Sprint store for his phone records, and an employee handed over the records. The employee was later fired, and even though the manager, Abdul Entallaby, have apologized for the breech in confidentiality, it hasn’t stopped the snowball from rolling.
Court News reports that Bishop Mimms says his furious wife confronted him with the call log transcripts of him calling another woman, in front of their 15-year old daughter, as well as, in front of several members of the congregation.
His attorney, Scott Barnhart is now handling the case and the lawsuit states that the “Plaintiff’s conversation with that Sprint employee or representative caused Plaintiff’s blood pressure to increase, his head to perspire, and his heart rate to increase.”
He wants Sprint Nextel Corp. and the Sprint store manager, Entallaby, to pay actual and punitive damages for their alleged breach of confidentiality, negligence and invasion of privacy. No one has confirmed or denied the actual cheating, but for someone to go to that extent to conceal phone records from his wife, is obviously hiding something. God sees everything!
