Latest development in Central NY legal tussle

The twists and turns of the legal tussle between the Diocese of Central NY and two parishes seeking to withdraw from the diocese have been followed closely by titusonenine.

The latest development is a decision by an Onandoga county Supreme Court judge that “DFMS may also attend any and all discovery proceedings, but DFMS may not individually conduct any discovery without the express permission of the Court, following a showing that the interest of DFMS is somehow different or unique to the Diocese’s interest.”* So reports Raymond J. Dague an attorney on the side of the parishes.

More about Dague can be found here.

*DFMS = The Episcopal Church (the national body)
