The lawsuit by expelled Past Grand Master of West Virginia Bro. Frank Haas against the Grand Lodge of West Virginia and Past Grand Master Bro. Charles Coleman and current Grand Master Bro. Charlie Montgomery will go on, the Charleston Gazette reported today, after Circuit Judge Irene C. Berger denied motions to dismiss by the defendants.
The case will now move to the discovery phase.
Bro. Haas' deposition is scheduled for October 8. He is suing for reinstatement as a West Virginia Mason and for unspecified damages.
