    Motion for Rehearing

    This document is the official Motion for Rehearing submitted to the Texas Supreme Court on part of the plaintiffs in Local Church et al v. Harvest House et al after the Texas Court of Appeals ruled to overturn earlier District Court rulings and grant summary judgment in favor of Harvest House Publishers, John Ankerberg, and John Weldon. The motion explains the importance of the case in both jurisprudential and practical terms and also contests the reasons given by Harvest House against review. Furthermore, it reiterates that the plaintiffs’ action is based upon the false categorization of the local churches as a cult in the secular, not religious, sense of the term.
