Saint Peter's CEO Resigns as Supreme Court Hearing Nears

This past Wednesday, March 22, news emerged that Ronald Rak had resigned as Saint Peter's CEO. A terse, undated announcement in employees' email from Vincent J. Dicks, chairman of the board of governors, announced that Rak had resigned "for personal reasons" and that company president Leslie Hirsch had assumed the additional role of interim CEO. The statement did not mention whether Rak would remain at Saint Peter's in any capacity.

The news comes as the scheduled date nears for Saint Peter's hearing before the US Supreme Court in its ERISA church exemption appeal. Oral argument in the three consolidated cases is scheduled for one hour this coming Monday, March 27.

There is no indication, and we have no idea, whether the timing of the Rak announcement is any more than coincidence. We will relay any news we can about Monday's court hearing as we get it.
