LOS ANGELES -- Church of Scientology lawyers claim they have uncovered evidence that a Boston attorney has planned 'a sordid billion-dollar plot of extortion' against the organization.

Scientology attorney John Peterson filed a declaration in U.S. District Court Thursday in which he alleged that Michael Flynn, an outspoken critic of the church, has attempted in the past six years to harass the church by filing a series of 'frivolous, unfounded and duplicative lawsuits.'

The church filed a $2-million libel suit against Flynn in 1983 after he implied in a Los Angeles speech that church members attempted to murder him by sabotaging his private airplane in 1979.
