Church dispute

Posted By on Tue, Apr 22, 2008 at 2:02 PM

I'm in receipt of legal filings in a case contesting AME Church Bishop Richard Chappelle's decision to reassign pastors at two well-known Little Rock AME churches -- Rev. Rickey Hicks at Rufus K. Young AME and Rev. Randolph Martin at Union AME. At the request of the pastors, a temporary restraining order has been issued so that they can contest the matter through church channels. The filing said the plaintiffs believed the bishop wanted to swap assignments and that the status quo needed to be preserved while the pastors appealed.
