Litigation - the Diocese of Fort Worth

The Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth, which is incorporated under Texas law, voted at its annual convention in November 2008 to amend its Constitution and bylaws to make the corporation no longer a diocese in ECUSA. Predictably, ECUSA's Presiding Bishop and her Chancellor have moved in to organize the dissenters into a body that they think can serve as a vehicle for a lawsuit against the departed diocese to assert claims to its bank accounts and property. The moves in that game, and what is wrong with ECUSA's strategy, are detailed in the posts below.
