Amend petition by adding:
A Complain may be held in abeyance with the approval of the Board of Ordained Ministry if civil authorities are involved or their involvement is eminent on matters covered by the complaint.  The status of complaints held in abeyance shall be reviewed at a minimum of every 90 days by the bishop and the executive committee of the Board of Ordained Ministry to ensure that the involvement of civil authorities is still a valid impediment for proceeding with the resolution of a complaint.  Abeyance of a complain may be terminated either by the bishop or the Board of Ordained Ministry.  The time in which a complaint is held in abeyance shall not count toward the statute of limitations.  A clergyperson shall continue to hold one's current status while a complaint is held in abeyance.
