In Re: Request for a Declaratory Decision from the Wyoming Annual Conference Regarding the Complaint Process with Reference to ¶¶ 361, 362, and 2701.2d
Digest of Case
The Judicial Council has no jurisdiction.
Statement of Facts
During the clergy session of the 2009 Wyoming Annual Conference a clergy member made a motion to request a declaratory decision from the Judicial Council. In a written ballot 23 persons voted in favor of the motion and 50 voted against. The motion to request a declaratory decision from the Judicial Council failed. The secretary of the Annual Conference forwarded the action to the Judicial Council, and the matter was docketed in the usual manner. Because the motion failed to obtain a majority at the Annual Conference clergy session, we have no jurisdiction.
