  1. Katherine says:

    I thought TEC-SC had lost the federal effort and been remanded to state court?

  2. Luke says:

    I ‘d guess the ECUSA Dio lawyers are trying to get a hearing on what they feel is a different issue or question than the one remanded in June.

  3. Katherine says:

    There was a federal trademark infringement case as well as the property case, and this may be it. The article could be more clear. If it’s the trademark case, according to the Anglican Curmudgeon this should be stayed until the property case is settled in SC courts. I hope to see an update here shortly.

  4. Undergroundpewster says:

    It is not a well researched article. Good luck DSC!

  5. Milton Finch says:

    The first one came from vonRosenburg. This one seems to be coming from the fake diocese individual churches.

  6. tjmcmahon says:

    Clarification would be much appreciated. Is this a separate case, or is this a hearing on whether to stay the balance of the federal proceedings pending the outcome of the state trademark case?
