As planned, the Diocese filed a motion today in response to the TEC parties’ petition for rehearing before the state Supreme Court. Our response was submitted at the request of the Court.
In its August 30 ruling, the Court reversed the trial court’s decision and ordered that the suit against us should be settled on the basis of Neutral Principles of Law, sending the case back to the trial court with instructions to apply Neutral Principles. While it is the right of the TEC parties to appeal this decision by asking for rehearing, such requests are rarely granted.
Please keep the Justices in your prayers as they consider the request before them.
