more ECUSA legal moves against bishops
Several reports of American bishops under fire:
First, in relation to San Joaquin some correspondence has been published on Brad Drell’s blog. Here is a PDF file which contains:
- a five page letter dated 17 July, from the Chancellor of the San Joaquin diocese to the Chair of the Title IV Review Committee, which seeks to rebut the claims made against his bishop, and
- another five page letter dated 22 June, from Bishop Swing of the Diocese of California (now retired) to Bishop Schofield of the Diocese of San Joaquin which seeks to persuade the latter to take action to rescind the amendments to the constitution of his diocese which precipitated the action against him.
Second, the Living Church has a report that the Presentment Against Bishop of Connecticut Moves Forward. This refers to an action which was last reported on 11 months ago, in August 2005.
Third, there are reports of a complaint against another bishop, this time retired Bishop William J. Cox. See here, and corrections here.
And finally for the record, the Living Church reports on changes to the membership of the Title IV Review Committee. (Title IV of the ECUSA Canons concerns Discipline.)
