Daniel Montalvo's Scientology Lawsuit Claims False Imprisonment, Child Labor Violations, Lack of Education While Growing Up in L.A.-Based Org - 2011-03-11
Now a young man who says he escaped from a Scientology workplace in the city of Commerce after growing up in the church has made some bombshell claims -- including disregard for child welfare laws, failure to report child neglect to authorities, false imprisonment and violation of labor laws -- in a pair of suits filed in L.A. against Scientology and the publisher of its L. Ron Hubbard books.
Montalvo was 19 when he made a break for it last year with the help of a Scientology defector. He ended up in Florida. When he tried to contact his parents, however, a Scientologist allegedly talked him into returning to L.A.
While in L.A., the suit claims, Montalvo was falsely imprisoned.
