After a federal judge ruled that the statute of limitations had not passed on one of McKenna Denson's claims against the Church, an attorney for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints weighed in on the possibility of a settlement. 

An attorney for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints says the probability is poor for settling a Colorado woman's lawsuit in which she alleges the church hid the sexual misconduct of a former Missionary Training Center president who she claims raped her.

A federal magistrate judge scheduled a 13-day jury trial to start July 13, 2020, in an order agreed upon by both sides Wednesday.
