Church of Scientology officials say they'll appeal a $39 million fraud judgment awarded a 27-year-old woman in a decision her lawyer says "will be heard around the world."

A Multnomah County Circuit Court jury on Friday awarded Julie Christofferson Titchbourne punitive damages of $1.5 million from the Church of Scientology Davis Mission, a Portland branch; $17.5 million from the Church of Scientology of California; and $20 million from church founder L. Ron Hubbard.

The jury also awarded Ms. Titchbourne $3,203 in general damages from each of the defendants.
