Bob Grenier Calvary Chapel Visalia pastor’s lawsuit is in the late innings. Here’s an update:
We (Team Alex Grenier, Alex Joye, Alex Joye Grenier) have fulfilled our Discovery requests from the Plaintiff (Bob Grenier, Calvary Chapel Visalia pastor and Visalia Police chaplain and Tulare County Sheriff’s chaplain in official capacities to our knowledge/belief at the time of this writing).
Depositions are under way with key witnesses being deposed under oath including Bryan Prosser (long time CC Visalia attendee), Jim Souza (20 year CC Visalia assistant pastor), Tina Jenkins (former CC Visalia Sunday School admin), Greg Dowds (career CC Visalia board member, elder and right hand man to Bob Grenier), Sue Dowds (CC Visalia women’s ministry, cafe helper, Greg’s wife), Alex Joye Grenier (yours truly), Didi Dehaan Grenier (Robert Jr.’s now ex-wife and former CC Visalia bookkeeper and assistant), Mike Buford Sr. (long time CC Visalia assistant pastor).
On the docket to be deposed: Alice Bryant (former CC Visalia bookkeeper), Gayle Grenier, Bob Grenier, Amy Tefft and Janet Tefft.
Witnesses likely to be called at Trial: Rose Rye, Suzette Dehaan, Gary Ruff, David Rosales, Raul Ries, Brian Brodersen, Roger Wing, Patricia Boesch, Jeff Pierce, Geoff Grenier, Greg Silva and possibly some others.
We have requested Discovery of Bob Grenier and we have yet to get cooperation on the whereabouts of Paul Grenier, a very key witness who alleges molestation, child abuse and financial abuse in his sworn Declarations already in the Court record. Bob Grenier and Bob Grenier’s attorney, Nick Pritchett, know of Paul Grenier’s whereabouts, Pritchett told me Paul had been in his office in Visalia recently. Bob Grenier sues, claims he wants to prove his innocence at a Trial…but has yet to cooperate in helping us get one of the most key witnesses served for deposition. Very suspicious and telling in my opinion.
We are having the same problem with getting Robert Grenier Jr. served for deposition. Robert Grenier Jr. alleges (in phone calls to myself and other witnesses) that Paul Grenier “molested” him…but went on to describe what was a several-year incestuous homosexual relationship with his brother, Paul. We know the Plaintiffs know his whereabouts and it is reported he is being harbored by a close fellow Calvary Chapel pastor who is involved over the years in other scandals in Calvary Chapel including allegations of gross misuse of funds and other issues (charges made by a former Calvary Chapel Pastor and board member of Lance Cook, Calvary Chapel La Habra). Birds of a feather flock together and help each other out in my opinion. Stinks to high heaven. If Chuck Smith is there…he can smell it.
Paul Grenier and Robert Grenier Jr.’s testimony under oath is extremely important in this case….a lawsuit brought by their biological father, Pastor Bob Grenier. Paul alleges molestation by Bob Grenier. Paul later, allegedly (we cannot confirm it is in fact Paul’s own writing and it was not made under oath), recanted his molestation allegations. The timing of the release of the not-under-oath statement attributed to Paul Grenier came at at time another brother reports he was visited by Gayle Grenier (after an 11 year hiatus and shunning) and that they purchased Paul “gifts” and they helped Paul get a new apartment (one he cannot afford from what we know of Paul’s financial struggles). All very suspicious. Now the Plaintiffs are not cooperating in providing Paul Grenier’s whereabouts so he can be served and be cross-examined under oath. Very very suspicious. Very wrong in my opinion. It is affecting my ability to get a fair shake in the court system in my opinion.
We are trying to serve Kevin Mizner (long time assistant at CC Visalia and former Tulare County Sheriff brass). We attempted to serve Mr. Mizner and cannot locate him, which is suspicious. Mr. Mizner should not be hard to find, yet like with Paul Grenier and Robert Grenier Jr., there seems to be some sort of agenda to hide them in my opinion. Why?
We are adding to the list of witnesses as depositions reveal and uncover more information. There is much we did not know about in addition to the massive amount of wrongdoings we’ve already uncovered through the blogs and reporting investigations. We look forward to Trial and we want all key witnesses to be deposed and/or take the stand at Trial and establish the truth. The Plaintiff seems reluctant to cooperate in that regard for some reason. Why?
Trial is still set for the end of September 2016.
I am stronger and more resolute than ever. I look forward to proving that I did not “defame” the Plaintiff. I am reporting, I am holding the Plaintiff to account as a Pastor/Police Chaplain regarding matters the Appellate Court ruled are “in the public’s interest”. Seeking Justice is virtuous, not an “attack from the devil” and not “defamation”.
I hope the Plaintiffs will cooperate in Discovery and lets get all the witnesses under oath, lets get all the info in the Court record and lets have a Jury decide who is telling the truth in these matters. That is what the Plaintiffs say they want, correct?
