PA Supreme Court Declines to Hear Pittsburgh Church Property Case

On Monday of this week the Pennsylvania Supreme Court denied the petition for allowance of appeal filed by the former Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh (or the “breakaway” diocese, as I had called it in my earlier posts) in the Pittsburgh church property case between the disaffiliated diocese and the rump group that decided to remain loyal to the national Episcopal Church. The Court’s order can be found here. Last February I explained why this was the likely result in this post. This ruling brings no joy to my heart, but, for the reasons I set forth in the earlier posts, I think it was the correct one.
