A statement on today’s hearing from Katie Sherod of the Diocese of Fort Worth
“The Hon. John Chupp, judge of the 141st District Court of Tarrant County, Texas today ruled that our attorney Jon Nelson and Chancellor Kathleen Wells are not authorized to represent Jack Iker or others associated with him. Our attorneys have never claimed to do so. The judge denied the motion by Bp. Iker’s attorneys to remove the diocese and the corporation from the lawsuit filed April 14, 2009.
While the judge did make some offhand remarks in court and asked many questions, he made no other rulings.”
