From South Carolina-
The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has refused once again to hear a case accusing Bishop Mark Lawrence of false advertising, remanding it to the U.S. District Court in Charleston.
The suit alleges that Mark Lawrence is committing false advertising by continuing to represent himself as bishop of the Episcopal diocese.
The case has gone before the U.S. District Court in Charleston two times, and both times, Judge C. Weston Houck decided not to proceed with the case, preferring to wait until a separate state lawsuit is resolved that will clarify ownership of property and identities in the diocese.
That state suit now is stalled in the S.C. Supreme Court.
