Fort Worth files Motion for Expedited Oral Argument: Anglican Ink, July 6, 2012 July 7, 2012Posted by geoconger in Anglican Church of North America, Anglican Ink, Fort Worth, Property Litigation.
Attorneys for Bishop Jack Iker and the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth have filed a Motion for Expedited Oral Argument with the Texas Supreme Court to adjudicate its property dispute with the national Episcopal Church and its Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth.
The motion filed on 6 July 2012 noted that on 23 April “an amicus brief was filed in this case by seven bishops and three priests of The Episcopal Church (TEC). The brief supported the Fort Worth Diocese’s arguments that, should Texas adopt the Deference approach rather Neutral Principles for church property disputes, the final authority in the Episcopalian tradition on such disputes is the local bishop, not TEC’s national administrative office.”
