Episcopal Church details arguments to S.C. Supreme Court in local schism

From South Carolina-

The Episcopal Church and its local diocese have filed a brief with the S.C. Supreme Court detailing their arguments for overturning a circuit judge’s ruling that allowed parishes that left the national church in 2012 to take with them more than $500 million in church property and the Diocese of South Carolina name.

The S.C. Supreme Court agreed last month to hear the lawsuit, bypassing the state appellate court, and set Sept. 23 to hear oral arguments.

The parishes at issue all chose to identify with the Episcopal Church because of advantages to being included in the national brand, the 51-page brief states.
