Case Summary

FLOODLIT is seeking more information about the settlement in Monson’s 1990s civil case.

Monson, the son of Mormon prophet Thomas S. Monson, was sued for sexual harassment in the 1990s.

In 1989 in a separate case, Monson paid a $75 fine and was placed on probation after he pleaded guilty to charges of soliciting sex from a policy decoy prostitute.

The woman who sued Monson in the 1990s had worked at the same bank, American Investment Bank, as Monson for three and a half years.

She accused Monson of attempting to kiss her, of fondling her sexually, and of propositioning her.

He agreed in 1996 to settle for an undisclosed sum of money.

Monson was a practicing attorney for and a shareholder of Kirton McConkie, the LDS church’s longtime law firm.

In 2008, Thomas L. Monson became a Mormon bishop of the University 34th Ward, a singles ward at the University of Utah campus in Salt Lake City, Utah.
