[The Bulletin] 28 oct 2008--An unprecedented civil trial over a dispute between an Episcopal bishop and a priest he defrocked came to a close late last week.
The jury ruled in favor of Charles Bennison, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania, who won against Bishop David Moyer, rector of Good Shepherd Church in Rosemont. Bishop Moyer, who was deposed without a church trial by Bishop Bennison in 2002, filed suit against Bishop Bennison because he believed he had improperly been denied a church trial during the deposition. The suit alleged fraud against Bishop Moyer by Bishop Bennison.
Bishop Moyer, who now serves as bishop for the Traditional Anglican Communion, told The Bulletin although he is disappointed by the court's decision, he is trying to follow God's will through his adversity.
