SCOTUS says no to dispute between Episcopal Church and a conservative northern Virginia congregation that left over its position on gay issues. "The breakaway congregation claimed a right to keep the church building and surrounding property, and in 2008 a Fairfax County judge sided with it.

In 2011, the same judge who first sided with the conservative congregation sided with the Episcopal Church. Monday’s decision by the Supreme Court leaves that ruling intact."
