The showdown between a downtown lawyer and his unwelcome, unscrubbed neighbors at the homeless shelter across the street has come to an anti-climactic end: personal injury lawyer Harry C. Arthur has dropped the suit.
Rev. Joe D. Reynolds, the dean of the Cathedral, stated in the press release, "We are grateful that a way has been found to move forward with the Cathedral's mission of service in a way that is responsive to all the members of this neighborhood. The problems of homelessness and poverty diminish the lives of human beings and adversely impact the city of Houston. My prayer -- and expectation -- is that a neighborhood advisory council will find ways for The Beacon to be a part of the solution that are ever more caring, efficient and attentive to all God's children."
