Mangalore court shoots down challenge to bishops
February 15, 2011
Melwyn P. Noronha, a Mangalore diocese lawyer, hailed the verdict as a “landmark” decision and an example of the Indian justice system’s impartiality and respect for Church laws.
The United Christian Association and several local organizations filed the case in November. However the court on February 11 dismissed the action, calling it “unmaintainable.”
The association challenged rules that barred parishioners from Church bodies for filing cases against the Church or priests.
