SAN JOAQUIN: Court of Appeals Overturns Lower Court Ruling
Anglican Diocese of San Joaquin will have its day in court

By David W. Virtue
November 19, 2010

Appellate  justices yesterday reversed the summary judgment against the Anglican  Diocese of San Joaquin lodged by the Episcopal Church thus allowing the  diocese to have its day in court.

The appellate justices tossed  out a Superior Court judge's decision that the breakaway diocese  couldn't claim a right to the property in a jury trial. The judge  essentially had decided that it was a church matter, not a matter for  the civil courts.

The judge's ruling can be read here:
