It Ain’t There!
There is no JCD 1363. The chances are that the number was assigned to a case that for some reason, the Council decided late in its deliberations was not ready to a ruling.
It’s my view that things are getting more complicated and sometimes, last minute discoveries of older church law or something obscure in the Discipline comes up and throws a monkey-wrench in the thinking of the Council.
It might be that someone on the Council cannot make up his/her mind on a decision where the rest are split and the Council cannot act. Again, it could be that the decision was held till the last minute and then not possible to resolve.
Most likely, there was an editorial error made. They are rare but in actual numbers over the years, are the most likely to have occurred.
The Judicial Council makes human errors. Who knew?!
Curious as we all are, those nerdy enough to want to know, we probably will never get a reason. And once this kind of error is made, it becomes irrelevant since numbering a decision is like naming a child.
