According to the man suing Duggar and another man, Edward L. Lewis , Echols claims that he purchased the property from his cousin Lewis for $17,500 in the early 2000s. However, Echols argued that Michelle and Jim Bob’s 31-year-old son purchased the land years later for $1,000 without his knowledge.
The angry Arkansas resident fighting Duggar in court also claimed that he’s been paying property taxes on the property for nearly a decade. He sued the ex reality star’s company for quiet title.
Meanwhile, Echols is going after his cousin, Lewis for fraud and breach of contract.
