Fresno appeals court says Episcopal church properties must be returned

In 2014, Judge Donald S. Black ruled in Fresno Superior Court that the breakaway Anglican Diocese of San Joaquin led by Bishop John-David Schofield had no legal right to the properties that are worth tens of millions of dollars.
