New York Court Limits National Church Participation in Property Case

[The Living Church] 18 Apr 2007--A New York state court has rejected a motion filed by the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society of the Episcopal Church (DFMS) to join the lawsuit filed by the Diocese of Central New York against St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Syracuse.

The New York court’s April 10 ruling limits the national church’s right of action in cases involving the Dennis canon. It granted the DFMS the right to observe but not materially participate in the prosecution of the case.
