Luis and Rocio Garcia's federal fraud lawsuit against the Church of Scientology has survived another challenge as Judge James Whittemore denied the church's latest motion to dismiss.

The Garcias say they were defrauded by Scientology when it pressured them to donate hundreds of thousands of dollars in building projects, but since their lawsuit was first filed in January last year, it's run into numerous technical roadblocks.

The Garcias first had to win a mini-trial in Tampa when Scientology tried to disqualify their attorneys. They then had to deal with a jurisdictional challenge that put the case on hold for months and eventually resulted in the Garcias dismissing three of Scientology's entities from the lawsuit.
