Larry Jones and Feed The Children Kiss and Make-Up...Sort Of

In the newest installment of Nonprofit Times TV, we get the update on the now concluded legal struggle between Feed the Children and its founder, Larry Jones.  The Oklahoma City-based nonprofit recently announced that the litigation between the two parties has ended.  Terms of the agreement, however, were not disclosed as they were deemed "confidential."  We do know, however, that no part of the agreement will have Mr. Jones return to the organization in any capacity.  Jones was dismissed by the organization in 2009, which sparked his legal challenge of Feed the Children.

The dispute between Jones and Feed the Children has been well-documented, so it's good to hear that these two parties have finally put their differences behind them.  It is especially useful for Feed the Children.  This legal battle must have been a huge distraction to their business.  With the litigation over, they can get back to the job that Larry Jones intended them to do when he established the organization in 1979.  As always, give us your thoughts on this fascinating story.
