[Bishop Mark] Lawrence spokeswoman Jan Pringle said in a statement that the injunction will remain in effect until the court rules on the property dispute “to protect the Diocese’s real, personal and intellectual property and that of its parishes from a TEC takeover.”

"This is not an unusual development, and it signifies only that these issues remain to be decided at a future time," said Holly Behre, communications director for The Episcopal Church in South Carolina.
