CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) – An attorney for a man whose wife was one of nine people shot and killed at Emanuel AME Church will be allowed to review records about donations made after the massacre.
The Post and Courier of Charleston reports the husband of Cynthia Hurd sued on behalf of her estate to prevent the money from being spent until the families’ attorneys can complete a review.
Attorneys for the church and Hurd’s husband, Arthur, reached an agreement Friday before a hearing began.
The attorneys say the agreement means that within 30 days, the church must provide documents related to the donations; data it provided to its accounting firm; and documents that the firm provides.
The agreement applies only to money the church placed into its “Moving Forward Campaign” fund.
