BREAKING: Accusers outed in Ft. Worth complaint
“In the case of those who signed an Amicus Brief in the Supreme Court of Texas concerning the case of Fort Worth and The Episcopal Church, two complaints were received - One by the Standing Committee and Executive Board of the Diocese of Fort Worth and another by a Deputy to General Convention from The Diocese of New Jersey. The Deputy also happens to be a lawyer,” Bishop Matthews wrote.
SF contributor Allan Haley is quoted in the article. He points out the bizarre way in which disciplinary “Intake Officer” Bishop Clay Matthews and his boss, the Presiding Bishop, were present at closed House of Bishops discussions in Indianapolis, when a call for action against the accused bishops was in play. The TEC Title IV disciplinary process seems to assume that church officers can be neutral in one disciplinary process while taking an active role for or against the same parties in another.
On first read by this legal layman, it seems as if the TEC disciplinary stuff allows something akin to a judge hearing your civil case to serve simultaneously on a jury hearing a criminal case against you.
