"This lawsuit is an attempt to silence me from trying to protect Haitian children from being sexually abused and my efforts to bring a measure of justice to those who have already been abused," said Kendrick at the time the lawsuit was filed in February 2013.
"The good news about this lawsuit is that the Haitian children who were sexually abused will finally have the opportunity to confront their abuser in the safety of a U.S. courtroom. The plaintiffs in this lawsuit are calling the victims liars. Their attempts to silence me will only serve to make the victims' voices stronger and more forceful."
