Complaints against Ballarat Bishop withdrawn

Posted by Kendall Harmon

The Episcopal Standards Commission will take no action against Ballarat Bishop Michael Hough, who was the subject of misconduct allegations made two years ago.

The Episcopal Standards Commission (ESC) was this week notified that the Anglican clergy and lay people withdrew their complaints.

Thirteen clergy and lay people withdrew their complaints after they entered into a confidential deed of settlement between their group, Bishop Hough and the Ballarat diocese.

I have no idea what lies behind this prolonged dispute, but clearly this Australian diocese has been polarized and torn apart, which is always unfortunate.  However, I’m glad that a relatively irenic resolution was reached in the end.  Maybe some Aussie readers can elaborate on this sad case for us.
