‘Barefoot preacher’ loses application

THE REVEREND William St Clair, also known as the “barefoot preacher”, has lost round two of his court action against the Methodist Church.

Yesterday, the Court of Appeal, comprising Chief Justice Sir Marston Gibson and Justices Of Appeal Andrew Burgess and Sandra Mason, threw out his application for an appeal.

This occurred after the father and son legal team of Elliott Mottley, QC, and Stewart Mottley, representing the church, filed an application asking the court to strike out St Clair’s application.

“The court ruled that they had no leave to appeal – the court ruled in our favour,” Stewart Mottley told the MIDWEEK NATION.  (MB)
