Jon Bruno documents during the bishop’s testimony March 29. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry on Aug. 1 removed Diocese of Los Angeles Bishop J. Jon Bruno’s authority over St. James the Great in Newport Beach, California.The presiding bishop’s action, which includes placing St. James in the jurisdiction of Los Angeles Bishop Coadjutor John Taylor, came as the Episcopal Church awaits the final order from the hearing panel considering disciplinary action against Bruno.The Further Partial Restriction is intended to chart a way forward that clarifies and respects the appropriate role and authority of Taylor and the Standing Committee as well as the Title IV disciplinary process and the hearing panel, according to an Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs press release.“It is my hope that this action will help to facilitate positive steps toward resolution and reconciliation,” Curry said in the release.Curry’s order adds to one he issued in late June, partially restricting Bruno’s ministry, specifically his ability to sell the St. James property.The five-member hearing panel drafted an order in mid-July, calling for Bruno’s suspension from ordained ministry for three years because of misconduct.They concluded in a 4-1 decision that “the scope and severity of Bishop Bruno’s misconduct … have unjustly and unnecessarily disturbed the ministry of a mission of the Church.”Curry cited that draft order in his Aug. 1 action.“My review of the order and the factual findings that undergird it, as well as my independent understanding of the deeply impaired relationships among the respective parties, have led me to have additional concerns about Bishop Bruno’s exercising any aspect of his episcopal authority over the St. James congregation, its ‘Vicar,’ or St. James’ real and personal property, during the pendency of this matter in the Title IV process,” the presiding bishop wrote.“In my opinion, any exercise of more general authority by Bishop Bruno over the St. James congregation while the Title IV matter is pending, including through a likely prolonged appeal process when any suspension or other disciplinary order would not be in effect, may threaten the good order and welfare of the Church.”He said he wanted to “create space” for Taylor and the Standing Committee to exercise their ministries of healing and reconciliation within the diocese, and try to resolve the issues surrounding the St. James congregation and its building.“With this restriction in place, I urge the diocesan leadership to press forward vigorously toward reconciliation for the sake of the ministry of the Gospel,” Curry wrote.Taylor later issued a statement “pledg[ing] to do all we can to use this opportunity to achieve a just outcome for the sake of our entire diocesan community.”“The presiding bishop’s action enables the Rev. Dr. Rachel Anne Nyback, president of the Standing Committee, her fellow committee members, and me to move ahead prayerfully to promote truth, open dialogue, and reconciliation in matters that have distracted our diocese for many months and to do so without awaiting a final resolution of the charges against our Bishop, J. Jon Bruno,” Taylor said.The St. James congregation responded to the presiding bishop’s decision praising him for his “prayerful deliberation and profound wisdom.” In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Rector Smithfield, NC Director of Music Morristown, NJ Curate Diocese of Nebraska Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Submit a Press Release Property Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Martinsville, VA Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Bruno locked out the congregation nearly two years ago after the members objected to his unsuccessful 2015 attempt to sell the St. James property to a condominium developer for $15 million in cash. The congregation has been worshipping in a meeting room at the Newport Beach City Hall. Its canonical status with the diocese is in limbo.The attempted sale occurred less than 18 months after Bruno reopened St. James in late 2013, after recovering the property via a lawsuit prompted by a split in the congregation. Three other congregations in the diocese also split in disputes about the Episcopal Church’s full inclusion of LGBTQ people in the life of the church.The subsequent effort to sell St. James to a developer prompted congregation members to bring misconduct allegations against Bruno, claiming he violated Episcopal Church law. A hearing on those allegations was held in March.Bruno continued to try to sell the property even after that hearing. Those efforts, which the bishop tried to conceal, earned him a rebuke from the hearing panel in June. The panel said Bruno had to stop trying to sell the property during the disciplinary process. If he did try, or succeeded, before the panel decided the original case against him, that behavior would be “disruptive, dilatory and otherwise contrary to the integrity of this proceeding,” the panel said at the time. The same is true of his failure to give the panel the information it asked for about the accusations, the notice said. Such behavior violates the portion of canon law that governs the behavior of clerics who face disciplinary actions (Canon IV.13.9(a) page 151 here).A few days later, Curry place his initial restriction on Bruno’s ministry.Bruno’s appeal of the panel’s sanctions failed.The 91-page draft order specifically rejects calls for Bruno to be deposed, or removed, from ordained ministry. It says that during the three-year suspension Bruno could not exercise any authority over “the real or personal property or temporal affairs of the Church.” A three-year suspension would take Bruno beyond his mandatory retirement date in November 2018, when he turns 72.The draft order, which is not final, also urges the diocese to let the members of St. James the Great return to their building.The draft order meticulously recounts the testimony and evidence the panel reviewed. It essentially upholds the St. James complainants’ allegations that Bruno violated church canons because he:failed to get the consent of the diocesan standing committee before entering into a contract to sell the property;misrepresented his intention for the property to the members, the clergy and the local community at large;misrepresented that St. James the Great was not a sustainable congregation;misrepresented that the Rev. Cindy Evans Voorhees, St. James’ vicar, had resigned;misrepresented to some St. James members that he would lease the property back to them for a number of months and that the diocese would financially aid the church; andengaged in conduct unbecoming a member of the clergy by “misleading and deceiving” the clergy and people of St. James, as well as the local community, about his plans for the property and for taking possession of the property and locking out the congregation.Diocese of Southern Virginia Bishop Herman Hollerith IV is president of the hearing panel considering the case against Bruno. The panel, appointed by the Disciplinary Board for Bishops from among its members, includes Rhode Island Bishop Nicholas Knisely, North Dakota Bishop Michael Smith, the Rev. Erik Larsen of Rhode Island and Deborah Stokes of Southern Ohio.The hearing panel did not publically release its draft order. It apparently gave the draft to the complainants and the presiding bishop for comment. Title IV.14.7 (page 153 here) calls for those parties “to be heard on the proposed terms of the order.” Comments to the hearing panel were due by July 26.Bruno was not allowed to comment on the draft to the hearing panel. The St. James complainants suggested that the hearing panel have its recommendation take effect immediately and not be stayed or affected by an appeal of its order.“There is a human cost to the continued exile of the congregation,” they wrote. “We have toddlers in the St. James congregation who have not been baptized because they were born while the congregation was in exile. Indeed, these toddlers have never seen the inside of the church.”The complainants said they have no room for a Sunday school and their Sunday school teacher quit because “she was tired of holding school in the open air, tired of being hurt by having herself and her children locked out by her bishop.” Diocesan staff recently refused to allow a funeral to be held in the building for a matriarch of the congregation, the complainants said.“We have received, but not included, many anguished emails from individual complainants, who cannot understand how the Episcopal Church allows the lockout to continue,” they wrote.– The Rev.

A three-judge Bench of CJI Bobde, Justice Bopanna and Justice Ramasubramanian has given the petitioner the liberty to withdraw and approach the High Court. The plea sought directions to the Uttarakhand government and High Court to reinstate the Petitioner with all consequential benefits including promotion as Additional District Judge with effect from 23rd February 2018. The Uttarakhand High Court had suspended the petitioner Civil Judge for allegedly holding a minor girl captive at her residence and mistreating her, and after conclusion of the investigation against her, an order dismissing her from service was issued against her on October 14th 2020 by a full Bench of the High Court. This decision of the Uttarakhand High Court was accepted by the Government and she was thereafter dismissed from service. The Plea has therefore challenged Uttarakhand government’s order dated 28th October 2020 removing the petitioner Civil Judge from service and recommendations of Uttarakhand High Court’s Full Court. The plea sought quashing of Uttarakhand government’s order removing the petitioner from service under Rule 3(b)(iii) of the Uttarakhand Government Servant (Discipline and Appeal) Rules, 2003, and order passed by the Uttarakhand High Court of Uttarakhand resolving to impose a punishment of removing the Petitioner from Service under the rules. In her plea before the Supreme Court, the petitioner has alleged that there are allegations of Institutional Bias and Victimisation of petitioner due to her act of raising questions and challenging propriety on the non-appreciation of material available on record, by the High Court while neglecting petitioner and some other batchmates in promotion as Additional District Judge. The plea stated that the petitioner is aggrieved by the gross violation of her right to life, along with right to dignity and reputation by the illegal acts of the officers/ subordinates working at the High Court in tarnishing her reputation in the eyes of general public by gross misuse of media, in complete abuse of power and contravention of the laws of the land. “It is respectfully submitted that the petitioners’ grievances are both on account of her personal loss in view of the violation of her rights under Article 21 and also her right to livelihood which has been deprived under arbitrary, irrational proceedings which were void ab initio. ” the plea read.According to the petitioner, , it is a classic case where the High Court directs inquiry on an anonymous complaint against the petitioner and on submission of the enquiry report calls for the objections. The Full Court, without recording any reasons whatsoever passed a short resolution that it resolved to accept the findings recorded in the inquiry report by the Inquiry Officer. “It is clear on record that the initiation of Disciplinary Proceedings, its findings and the Order based on the Report are void ab initio and non-est in the eyes of law.” the plea stated.According to the petitioner, the High Court before taking cognizance of the anonymous complaint sent on email, did not even think it proper to inquire into the credentials of the complainant as provided in its own notification in compliance with the guideline issued by the Chief Justice of India, laying down that no action should be taken against members of the subordinate judiciary in the State unless complaint making allegations is accompanied by a duly sworn affidavit and verifiable material is placed to substantiate the allegations therein. The plea has contended that the email /complaint was sent anonymously by the next-door neighbour of the petitioner, who himself in his deposition has stated that he did not know anything about the alleged victim except having seen her once or twice in the premises of the petitioner. Therefore, the initiation of enquiry proceedings on the basis of anonymous complaint is unsustainable in the eyes of law. The plea further argued that once the State Govt of Uttarakhand by order its dated 19th August 2019 allowed withdrawal of the criminal case under section 321 CrPC then no disciplinary proceedings could have been proceeded on the same and similar facts. “More so in the case in hand, the Court of Revision had carefully gone through the record and accepted the plea of public prosecutor that it was a case of fabricated evidence and the girl was used as a pawn. In view of the above findings, proceeding further with the enquiry is not only contrary to law, rules and constitutional provisions but in clear violation of the law laid down by this Court.” – the plea stated. According to the petitioner, the order of withdrawal of prosecution on 5th Sept 2020 was informed to High Court by the petitioner on 10th September pleading that when on same set of facts and evidence an order has been passed on the judicial side allowing withdrawal of prosecution then no departmental inquiry on same facts could have been allowed or any order on that basis be passed. Further, the plea stated that the Disciplinary Authority, in this case the High Court, neither passed a reasoned order, nor granted opportunity of showing cause against the proposed imposition of penalty which is completely violative of the mandate of Article 235 read with Article 309 of the Constitution. “The Government was under statutory obligation to consult the Public Service Commission before taking the drastic decision particularly in view of the discharge of the Petitioner in criminal proceedings and the allegations of bias and unfairness in the entire proceedings and failure on the part of the government to consult the Public Service Commission before passing the impugned order dated 20.10.2020 has resulted in grave injustice to the petitioner and as such the impugned order is liable to be set aside. ” – the plea read.The present plea before the Apex Court was filed by Advocate Daya Krishan Sharma on behalf of the petitionerNext Story

carlballou/iStock(CONCORD, Calif.) — A 60-year-old man was shot and killed by police after allegedly causing his 85- and 90-year-old parents “serious injuries” and refusing to drop a knife while he held it over his mother as he straddled her on the floor. The incident occurred at approximately 11:45 a.m. Sunday in Concord, California when police received a call from the 85- and 90-year-old residents of the home informing them that their son was “acting erratically and was possibly under the influence of drugs and alcohol,” according to a statement from the Concord Police Department. Neighbors also called authorities to report a man was in the front yard of the home wielding a firearm. Police attempted to speak with the man when they arrived on scene but the man ran back into the house instead of engaging with the officers.The attending officers then saw an elderly man visibly suffering from serious injuries walk out of the house. When the police made their way inside the California home they discovered the man straddling his mother while holding a knife.“At that point, two officers used their service weapons. Officers provided medical aid to both elderly victims and the man, but the 60-year-old son was pronounced dead at the scene,” said the Concord Police Department. The 85- and 90-year-old parents of the man were immediately transported to a local hospital where they are being treated for serious injuries. The nature of their injuries is currently unknown.“Anytime force is used, it is tragic,” said the Concord Police. “Our thoughts are with the man’s family during this difficult time.” The City of Concord and the Concord Police Department are now working with investigators from the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office to investigate the incident.
