Adding insult to injury, Valerie Haney faces a hearing for $160,000 in sanctions this week - 2021-01-10
In the last few days attorneys for Valerie Haney and the Church of Scientology have filed briefs in preparation for a hearing at Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday that will consider whether Scientology can saddle Valerie with $160,000 in sanctions as punishment for asking a judge to reconsider his ruling to deny her a right to trial and force her into Scientology's 'religious arbitration.'
We have those documents for you to look at. And we'll try to help you understand how, after her lawsuit was short-circuited by Scientology's legal chicanery, the church is also in a position to saddle her with such a large cash penalty.
It's almost as if suing Scientology in US courts were a dicey endeavor.
