The Rev. Jeffery Stallworth is now the only defendant remaining in a woman's $10 million lawsuit claiming she was sexually assaulted by him.
The woman alleges he sexually assaulted her in August 2001 when he stayed at her Maryland home.
The Clarion-Ledger reported that Anderson United Methodist Church of Jackson and the Mississippi United Methodist Conference have been dropped from the woman's lawsuit against Stallworth.
Stallworth, then-pastor of Anderson United Methodist Church in Jackson, pleaded guilty in 2002 to a misdemeanor count of sexually assault.
He was sentenced to two years' probation. The conviction was later wiped from his record after he served the mandatory probation period.
