Invest can get all the info they want but must take NO action without clearing it with Church attorneys. Invest’s purpose is to serve Legal and that is its sole function. Legal takes NO action without clearing it first with Church attorneys.
Invest can undertake and initiate actions for Legal and that is very valuable and that is its function. If Invest comes up with data which would be useful for PR, it still gets cleared with Legal first who makes the decision. They have NO right to take independent actions. There should not be a whisper of independent action. None whatsoever. Legal, PR or any other way. Invest’s actions may only be taken after consultation with Church attorneys and that’s the way the shoe fits.
PR campaigns also get cleared with Legal. Legal can then make sure no weird claims are made so they don’t get us into trouble.
We should frown upon anything being issued, etc., which would affect Legal lines without close consultation with Legal.
