In a unanimous decision, a three-justice panel of the 2nd US District Court of Appeals in Florida has struck down a $1 million judgment Scientology had won against attorney Ken Dandar.

"What a great day! I am thankful for all who kept me in their prayers and supported me. The court agreed with us 100 percent," Dandar tells us.

The federal appeals court found that a state court in Pinellas County that had assigned that judgment against Dandar didn't have have the authority to do so. Scientology had asked for the judgment based on litigation that was concluded long ago — the civil lawsuit filed by the family of Lisa McPherson against the Church of Scientology, which Dandar helped settle in 2004. Scientology claimed that in that settlement, Dandar had promised never again to represent a client against the church.
