Roman Catholic Bishop v. Bowen (Cal. Ct. App. - Sept. 5, 2013)

Boy, it is a hassle to reorganize the Catholic Church, isn't it?

The beginning of the opinion makes it sound like it's a simple case.  But as I read on, it actually sounds like this is pretty complicated.  It definitely at least looks like the Secretary of State isn't totally on top of things.  And may well be acting inconsistently, even if (perhaps) appropriately in the present case.

Figuring out how religious corporations work, and how they mesh with domestic corporation laws, ain't easy.

This case proves it.
