    Is something missing?

  2. Chancellor says:

    Yes, Nikolaus, at this point the full complaint is missing — I have in my possession just the first fifteen pages, without the all-important conclusion, so I have not blogged about it yet. But I can say this: the suit is brought not in Adams County, where Judge Ortbal already ruled for the Anglican Diocese, but in Peoria County — where the Diocese is headquartered. Although from what I can see at this point, it appears to be based on claims that either were, or could have been, adjudicated in the earlier lawsuit, I cannot say for certain without seeing the full complaint, which I hope to have by tomorrow.

    At any rate, this news just shows ECUSA at its most despicable. It is trying to bury the Anglican Diocese (whose funds it recently managed to freeze again, with the help of compliant Illinois judges) in litigation expenses.

    Judge shopping?

    #1, there are numerous instances where sometimes just a headline is posted, for the purposes of keeping people’s awareness and informing their prayers.
