Big Win for the Bats
and Amanda Lollar of Bat World Sanctuary!
Fort Worth, Texas, June 14, 2012 -- After nearly two years of depositions and court appearances, Amanda Lollar, Founder and President of Bat World Sanctuary has come out victorious in the lawsuit against Mary Cummins for defamation of character, libel and internet harassment.
Bat World Sanctuary is an internationally renowned, non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of bats. The sanctuary survives solely on donations and volunteers, and was severely impacted because of the malicious and false claims made against them by this individual.
Ms. Lollar felt that she had no choice but to file this lawsuit to protect the reputation of herself and more importantly, to protect the over 50,000 bats that are now in her care at the sanctuary. Had it not been for the sanctuary's stellar reputation with governmental officials, every bat that has lived peacefully at Bat World Sanctuary for almost 20 years was put in jeopardy of being destroyed by inhumane decapitation due to her outlandish claims.
With determination, strong will, and the help of a top-notch animal rights attorney, Ms. Lollar has won the fight and can now get on with what she does best. "We are just so glad that this is finally over so we can just focus on what's important-the bats," says Amanda Lollar.
"I would also like to thank everyone who stood by us during this trying time, continued to donate, volunteer and never, ever lost faith in us. We also could not have persevered without the invaluable pro-bono services of our attorney, Randy Turner. I will be forever grateful to him for all that he has done for us," says Lollar.
