Episcopal panel to look into charges against L.A. bishop

From RNS-

The national Episcopal Church has referred charges against L.A. Bishop J. Jon Bruno to a three-bishop panel “for further review and action,” according to Bishop F. Clayton Matthews, head of the church’s Office of Pastoral Development.

The charges were brought by members of St. James the Great Episcopal Church in Newport Beach, CA, and other clergy and lay members of the Los Angeles Diocese. The charges – called a presentment – include many instances of alleged “dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation” by Bishop Bruno in connection with the pending sale of the St. James the Great property. The presentment also alleges conduct unbecoming a bishop and violations of the vows of ordination.
