A South Carolina court has made permanent the temporary restraining order entered on 23 Jan 2013 in the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina case. On 31 Jan 2013 Judge Diane Goodstein issued a Temporary Injunction that supplanted her Temporary Restraining Order which forbade any person or entity from claiming to be or using the name, symbols and seal of the diocese save for Bishop Mark Lawrence and the officers of the diocese.
Attorneys for the Episcopal Church declined to contest the TRO at the hearing scheduled for 1 Feb 2013. The Temporary Injunction will stand until the litigation is concluded, however, either party may petition the court to modify or remove the ban.
