Story Highlights

On Tuesday, January 11, 2011, in preparation for the upcoming hearings in the 141st District Court of Tarrant County, the Episcopal Parties filed various responses and objections to the filings of the Southern Cone parties. The following motions are set for hearing on Friday, January 14: Episcopal and Southern Cone competing motions for summary judgment, Episcopal Congregations’ motion for continuance, Bishop Ohl’s motion to compel production of documents, and Episcopal Rule 12 motions challenging the authority of the attorneys for the Southern Cone parties who claim to be the historical Diocese, the Diocesan Corporation, and various Parishes and Missions of the Diocese. Included are:

  • The Church’s Reply in Support of Its Motion for Summary Judgment;
  • The Local Episcopal Parties’ Reply in Support of their Amended Motion for Partial Summary Judgment;
  • The Episcopal Parties’ Response to the Defendants’ Objections to Plaintiffs’ Summary Judgment Motions and Evidence;
  • The Episcopal Parties’ Objections to the Defendants’ Supplemental Appendix and Evidence Attached to Response; and
  • [The Local Episcopal Parties’ and Episcopal Congregations’] Response to [Defendants’] Motion to Quash Rule 12 Motions.
