S.C. Supreme Court denies Anglican rehearing

From South Carolina-

The state Supreme Court denied a request from the Protestant Episcopal Church in the Diocese of South Carolina to rehear the case in which the court previously ruled that the breakaway group must return church property to The Episcopal Church.

The court voted 2-2 on the rehearing motion (.pdf). A majority would have been required to grant the rehearing, and Justice Kaye Hearn did not vote.

The denial keeps in place the August ruling, which said that 29 breakaway parishes, including St. Philip’s Church on Church Street and St. Michael’s Church on Broad Street, must return property.
