Rights, Contracts, Torts, Crimes

From the book The Clergyman’s Hand-book of Law, about Rights, Contracts, Torts, Crimes (1): Vested property rights, contracts, torts, and crimes, are usually subject to the laws of the State and the control and judgment of a church tribunal is seldom final. While the State courts have no ecclesiastical jurisdiction and can not revise or question ordinary acts of church discipline, they have the power to adjudicate conflicting claims of parties to the church property or the use of it.522
