Blog: Appeal Court rejects Headleys' lawsuits - 2012-07-26
A US appeal court has thrown out lawsuits brought by former Sea Org members over the abuse they suffered inside Scientology. But the ruling suggests that another legal approach might have been more fruitful.
Claire and Marc Headley, two former members of Scientology's Sea Organization, have lost their lawsuits over the violence and abuse they suffered inside the movement.
Marc Headley had argued that he and fellow workers were subjected to "assault, threat and menace" to make them work more than a hundred hours a week, for far less than the minimum wage.
