(ChurchLeaders) Dino Rizzo, a member of the Senior Pastor Leadership Team at The Church of the Highlands in Alabama, is one of several defendants named in a recent lawsuit filed by Laura Ashley Eagan. Eagan claims that while she was an intern at Vibrant Church in Mississippi last year, she was subjected to sexual harassment, negligence, and deceit at the hands of senior pastor Jason Delgado.
“Mr. Jason Delgado used his position of confidence, and his knowledge of Mrs. Eagan’s situation to fulfill his sexual perversions,” states the suit, which was filed Sept. 30. “At best, this is a deliberate manipulation of those in need to fulfill unnatural, sexual fantasies. At worst, this is a calculated sexual predator, with his free pick of vulnerable victims.”
