Here is the Clerk's transfer list for the week ending May 27, 2011. It is two pages (and 22 cases) long.
One petition to transfer was granted:
- Presbytery of Ohio Valley, Inc., et al. v. OPC, Inc., et al. - an was a Dec. 14, 2010 COA opinion where the court ruled: "In this appeal, a local congregation that was a part of the national Presbyterian Church petitioned to leave the national Church. When the governing Church body indicated that it might not permit the local congregation to retain the property on which it was situated, the local congregation truncated the process and refused to acknowledge the Church's right to the property. The dispute made its way into the judicial system, and we now conclude that because (1) the local congregation was part of the national Church and accepted the benefits of being part of a national organization, (2) the local congregation acknowledged in its bylaws that it was bound by the national Church Constitution and could not amend its bylaws to conflict with that document, and (3) the Church Constitution contains a clause providing that all property titled to local congregations is held in trust for the use and benefit of the national Church, judgment must be entered in favor of the governing judicatory bodies of the national Church—the Appellants."
