2064. Rulings on District Actions. The General Superintendent shall rule on the legality of an official action by a district conference, any district board or committee, or a district official as follows: Any three or more members of The Wesleyan Church within a district or provisional district may request such a ruling and shall submit their petition in writing, signed by each petitioner (2016 Wesleyan Discipline:323:6). The General Superintendent shall decide if the official act in question, in whole or in part, is deemed properly taken according to the Constitution (2016 Wesleyan Discipline:200-385), or other provisions of The Discipline (cf. 2016 Wesleyan Discipline:155–185), stating reasons for the ruling in writing. If the action is ruled as contravening the Constitution, or other provisions of The Discipline, it shall be null and void. Appeals from the decision of the General Superintendent may be made by the petitioners or the district board of administration to the General Board of Review (2016 Wesleyan Discipline:375:2).
