California Supreme Court Rules for Diocese of Los Angeles in Property Dispute

At 10:00 a.m. Pacific time, the California Supreme Court released its long awaited decision on the property disputes between the Diocese of Los Angeles and former Episcopalians attempting to take diocesan property with them when they left the Episcopal Church.

You can read the whole decision here ... but if you want to "cut to the chase," here's the bottom line:

Applying the neutral principles of law approach, we conclude that the
general church, not the local church, owns the property in question.

More to come ...
