Another Duggar Family Member Is Facing Legal Trouble

The Duggar family from TLC's hit reality shows "19 Kids and Counting" and "Counting On" are no strangers to legal trouble. Most notably, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar's eldest son Josh Duggar was charged and sentenced with prison time for the possession of child sexual abuse materials (via Us Weekly). In May, he received a sentence of just over 12 years in prison following a lengthy trial.


While Josh's crimes are the most serious, he isn't the only member of the Duggar brood to find themselves involved in the legal system recently. His sister, Jana Duggar, made headlines in late 2021 for charges of endangering the welfare of a minor (per TMZ). She was cited by the police; however, she was able to settle the charges outside of court, according to People.

The list of Duggars dealing with legal trouble extends beyond Josh and Jana. Now, another member of the family is finding themselves in trouble with the law.

Amy Duggar is caught in a heated legal battle

Amy Duggar King, a cousin of the Duggar brood, has been outspoken about Josh Duggar's disgraceful actions. She took to Instagram following his sentencing and said, "Hopefully tonight I can sleep for the first time ever and just be rest assured that another monster will be put behind bars."


Now, Amy has found herself in her own legal battle. According to The U.S. Sun, she is involved in a lawsuit for reportedly failing to pay rent on the storefront she is leasing for her clothing store, 3130 Clothing.

Here's what we know so far

The lawsuit claims, "3130 occupied the premises until August 2021 at which time it vacated the premises which constitutes a default of the Lease and Amendment and a breach of contract." The complaint continues, "3130 failed to make the required monthly rent payments to the plaintiff as required by the Lease and Amendment after June 2021."


The landlord is requesting reimbursement from unpaid rent for June 2021, legal fees, court costs, and interest. However, Amy and her husband filed a counterclaim against their landlord, arguing that they had a Tenant Improvement allowance. They are also asserting that they have security footage to prove the company that owns the building broke into their clothing store and "trashed" it, for which they are also seeking compensation.

The drama between Amy and her landlord is likely to heat up in court.
