Litigation and the Episcopal Church (USA)

The Legal Follies of ECUSA, Part II

On this page are collected links to all of the posts that deal with aspects of the Episcopal Church (USA) in litigation with fellow Christians. Since I practice church law, this topic is of major interest to me, and so there are quite a number of posts.

Grouped at the outset are the posts that give an overview of the current litigation. Then there is a new series, "How Did ECUSA Get its Attorneys?", which examines in depth the legal and ethical bases for the complex relationships between ECUSA, its Presiding Bishop, and their attorneys. There follow links to other individual pages that collect posts on specific topics, like the Dennis Canon, and on litigation in and with specific dioceses, grouped alphabetically. Finally there is a link to the page that deals with the intrachurch disciplinary actions under the canons, and the abuses of the so-called "abandonment canons."
