Duggar sisters sue over release of Josh Duggar molestation docs
Four Duggars are taking legal action over their brother's molestation scandal, which their parents attempted to cover up.
Jill, Jessa, Jinger and Joy Duggar are suing city, county, and police officials in Springdale, Arkansas and In Touch magazine after documents that detailed their brother Josh Duggar's sexual molestation case were made public.
Jill, Jessa, Jinger, and Joy (the fam's spinoff-worthy "fab four", if you will) filed a lawsuit against the city of Springdale, Arkansas over the 2015 police documents, according to TMZ.
They say In Touch filed a Freedom of Information Act request in 2015 to obtain the police files and publishing at least 8 stories about the investigation.
Plaintiffs include the city of Springdale, Washington County, former Springdale Police Chief Kathy O'Kelley, Springdale City Attorney Ernest Cate, Rick Hoyt with the Washington County Sheriff's Office, former Washington County Attorney Steve Zega and Bauer Media Group, which published In Touch magazine and related social media sites.

U.S. launches strikes against Syrian militia
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said, "We are not increasing our role in the Syrian civil war, but we will defend our troops". Syria has condemned the strike as a "brazen attack" that undermined claims the alliance is fighting extremists.
In its report, In Touch did not identify Josh's victims by name.
At the time the accusations surfaced in the media, Jim Bob and Michelle spoke out about their eldest son.
They further allege that In Touch used "sensationalized headlines to lure readers into salacious stories and exploited [their] pain and suffering". Part of the fallout from the scandalous revelation that Josh had molested his siblings when he was a teenager was the cancellation of the Duggar's TLC reality TV show, 19 Kids and Counting. But, according to TMZ, they're not suing on behalf of themselves but rather on behalf of other cases involving young victims-so it doesn't happen to them. "Revealing juvenile identities under these circumstances is unacceptable, and it's against the law".
The Duggars' lawsuit is one involving public figures who are famous for holding a certain set of values and supposedly living a specific lifestyle. Josh was also forced to enter a rehab program.
It's been nearly two years since news of Josh Duggar's molestation scandal broke, and the Duggar family still hasn't quite recovered.
