Vt. Woman in Lesbian Custody Case Sues Va. Pastor

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) -- A Vermont woman whose former lesbian partner fled the country with the daughter born while they were joined in a civil union is suing her and a Virginia pastor who helped them flee to Nicaragua.

Fair Haven resident Janet Jenkins filed the civil lawsuit Tuesday when a jury was announcing its guilty verdict against Mennonite pastor Kenneth Miller, who helped Lisa Miller and daughter Isabella flee.

Kenneth Miller is from Stuarts Draft, Va. He's not related to Lisa Miller. He says he's "willing to accept the consequences" of his actions.

Among the people named in Jenkins' lawsuit is a Virginia businessman prosecutors say worked with Kenneth Miller to get Lisa Miller and Isabella out of the country. The lawsuit seeks unspecified monetary damages.
