Scientology strikes out again as it fights a court order to turn over thousands of pages of evidence to former Sea Org worker Laura DeCrescenzo.

This evening, without explanation or a written order, the California Supreme Court denied Scientology's petition to hold up DeCrescenzo's lawsuit. The church argued that forcing it to turn over DeCrescenzo's confessional "pc folders" was a violation of its rights because California's priest-penitent law itself was unconstitutional.

A similar petition had already been denied without written order at the state appeals level, now it's struck out with the state supreme court, and the church has missed this session of the US Supreme Court. Tomorrow, there's a status hearing on the case in state court, and we'll see what the church does this time to try and get out of turning over Laura's own information to her.
