No News To Report

Grace Episcopal Alexandria


Still no ruling from the Fairfax Circuit Court. Not a huge surprise there, as the judge had warned us a decision could come as late as Monday due to a full docket. I’m cautiously optimistic that I will prevail on Kelly Gable’s plea of the statute of limitations, for she seeks to benefit from the misconduct of the very church for which she served on the vestry. Specifically, Grace Church, the clergy perjury parish, had a legal obligation to produce the document in question. Given that a quick email to the diocese or to vestry members would have elicited the email in question, it’s difficult to conclude that the church acted in good faith. That said, like most lawyers I am risk averse, so I’m preparing my motion for reconsideration and my appeal, even as we speak. That way, if Kelly does prevail on the motion, I’ll be able to quickly respond.
