I was just shown a JC letter from a friend and I noticed that the bottom of it was signed by tree elders. The letter specifically stated that it was an invitation to a "Judicial Committee" due to the brother having a marital relationship that was not aligned with bible principles.
I am asking because I remember reading experiences of brothers who demanded their JC be arranged over certified mail with signed letters to which elders refused to do. Since they could not get this done the matter was dropped and no DFing ever happened. I think the explanation went back as to the letter becoming official and how it can be argued that there is formal judicial proceeding taking place outside the formal legal system.
Can anyone correct me of refresh my memory on this?
