#MeToo is fresh backdrop in lawsuit over Haiti abuse claims

A Maine activist who’s being sued over his claims that a Haiti orphanage founder is a serial pedophile says he’s more determined than ever to make sure victims’ voices are heard.

Paul Kendrick returned this week from Haiti where he talked to more accusers. He said there are now at the least 15 who say they were abused.

Orphanage founder Michael Geilenfeld and a U.S. charity argue Kendrick maligned him and cost the charity several million dollars in donations.

Geilenfeld and Hearts With Haiti won $14.5 million in federal tribunal but the verdict was overturned.

If there’s a new trial, then it will be against the backdrop of the #MeToo motion. Kendrick predicts there will be a different outcome with more victims.

Neither Geilenfeld’s attorney nor Hearts With Haiti have responded to requests for comment.
