CHURCH LAWYERS ASK U.S. SUPREME COURT FOR TIME EXTENSION
On March 23, 2018, the lawyers representing the Episcopal Church and the Episcopal Church in South Carolina formally requested the U.S. Supreme Court for an extension of their deadline for submitting a response to DSC's appeal to the court. The new asking date is April 30, 2018. The court had set the date of March 29 for a response from the Church side.
The lawyers also announced they have learned that one or more "amici" are preparing briefs in support of the DSC petition. Amici are "friends" of one side who submit supporting arguments and documents although they are not parties of the case. TEC is asking for extra time to prepare a response to the DSC amici presuming their papers will appear soon. The letter asks a deadline of April 30 for all respondents.
