The sexual coercion case filed against Bishop Eddie Long and New Birth Missionary Baptist Church was the top news story of 2010 in Atlanta.

Here is some of the information about the case as it happened earlier this year.

The case first came to light several months ago when two young men, Maurice Robinson and Anthony Flagg  filed a lawsuit against Long and the church charging that the Bishop used his influence and expensive gifts to entice them into having a sexual relationship with him.
