Court Session On The "Other Lawsuit" April 7

Via Fr Kelley, I learn that there will be a session before Judge Daniel Murphy in Department 32 of Los Angeles Superior Court on the case of the Bush Group vs. Church Mutual Insurance on Friday, April 7, at 8:30am. This doesn't directly affect the parish, but in the case, the Bush group has been claiming to be the "rector, wardens, and vestry" of St Mary of the Angels in attempting to recover legal cost reimbursement from Church Mutual Insurance.

On December 12 of last year, the same Judge Murphy granted Fr Kelley's motion for summary judgment and dismissed the Bush group's case against him on the basis that they were not in fact the rector, wardens, and vestry and had no standing to sue. This should be an interesting session. I plan to attend, as will a contingent from the parish.
