Jason Scott was 18 in 1991 when he was taken from his mother's Bellevue home to an isolated beach house on the Washington coast for five days of religious "deprogramming." He sued the Cult Awareness Network (CAN), and the Supreme Court has now agreed that it must pay up.

But in the case of Cult Awareness Network vs. Scott, Jason Scott is no longer involved. CAN no longer owns its name, and most of the interested parties have nothing to do with Bellevue's Life Tabernacle Church, where it all began.
