C.A. Rejects Attorney's Lien Claim in Scientology Case - 2006-12-08
The Court of Appeal for this district has rejected an attorney's claim to a portion of the millions of dollars recovered by a former Scientologist in the decades-long suit over what he said were coercive tactics by the church.
Div. Two Wednesday affirmed Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert L. Hess' ruling invalidating Leta Schlosser's attorney fee lien against Lawrence D. Wollersheim's $8.7 million recovery from the Church of Scientology and its affiliated organizations.
