Lawyers for the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles and three breakaway parishes met in mediation but failed to settle a lawsuit stemming from a dispute over who owns church property, an attorney said.

The suit, filed by the diocese against St. James Church in Newport Beach, All Saints Church in Long Beach and St. David’s Church in North Hollywood will now proceed through the court, Daniel Lula, who represents the parishes, said Thursday.

Lula declined to comment on discussion that took place during mediation, citing a state law that holds such sessions confidential.

The suits against the churches have been consolidated under Orange County Superior Court Judge David Velasquez, even though two of the churches and the diocese are in Los Angeles County.

Velasquez, who ordered the nonbinding mediation in March, will receive an update during a hearing scheduled Thursday, Lula said.

“We’re going to ask the court to set a hearing on a pending motion to dismiss the lawsuit,” Lula said.
