Diocese files response to petition for writ of mandamus
On January 19, 2010 the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth, the Corporation of the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth, and their attorneys filed with the Fort Worth Court of Appeals their response to the Southern Cone parties’ petition for writ of mandamus. Here is a copy of the response. The mandamus action arises out of the Tarrant County case in which the Southern Cone defendants challenged Judge Chupp’s September 16, 2009 order. The court of appeals can rule in the case at any time.
