Lic. Suárez submits this pleading to the Consejo de Indias which is considering the case of the Archbishopric of Mexico vs. the Society of Jesus: The case has deep roots, extending back more than a century and centering on the Society's claim of exemption from tithing to the archdioceses on certain, specified monies. A side issue is the manner in which the archdiocesan authorities have attempted to secure the disputed money.
