Court of Appeals hears arguments
On Tuesday, April 19, 2016, the Fort Worth Court of Appeals heard oral argument in Episcopal Church v. Salazar. An audio recording of the argument may be found here. A decision is expected in the coming months.
Provisional Bishop J. Scott Mayer and assisting bishops Rayford High and Sam Hulsey were present in the packed courtroom, along with many other people from the diocese.
Bishop Mayer said, “I was very impressed with the depth and clarity of the case as presented by our legal team. They did a very good job. As we await the decision, let us be about the job given us to do – to love and serve God and to love our neighbors as ourselves as we together carry out the mission of The Episcopal Church, to reconcile the world to God.”
The court’s audio recording is 39 minutes long and the audio MP3 file size is 38 MB.
