LOS ANGELES (AP) - A judge has asked attorneys for a group of nuns to work with attorneys for the Los Angeles Archdiocese to resolve the terms of a restraining order over the proposed sale of their hilltop convent to Katy Perry.

The dispute centers on who is authorized to sell the convent. The Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary say the building is theirs, and they’ve sold it to a local restaurateur, Dana Hollister, who has already moved in.

The Los Angeles Times reports (https://lat.ms/1fiIG56 ) that the case will return to court July 30, at which time the archdiocese will argue to end the sale.

In a June 19 lawsuit, the archdiocese claims it is responsible for selling the property, and plans a $14.5 million deal with another buyer. The defendants in the suit say that buyer is Perry.
