McDonnell seeks to intervene in Episcopal case

Attorney General Bob McDonnell has filed papers for the state to intervene in the Episcopal Church case in Northern Virginia.

The case, tried last fall, pits the diocese against 11 congregations that want to break away; millions of dollars in church property hangs in the balance. McDonnell said that since the constitutionality of a state statute was challenged in the case, the commonwealth needs to be a party.

The Washington Post has details.
