Garcias answer: Was Scientology not paying attention to an angry federal judge? - 2017-04-29
On Thursday, we told you about Scientology's surprising response to a federal judge who has lost all patience.
Luis and Rocio Garcia filed their fraud lawsuit against several Church of Scientology entities in 2013 over allegations that they'd been lied to in order to get about $400,000 in donations out of them for construction of Scientology's Super Power building. Two years later, Tampa Judge James Whittemore ruled that the contracts the Garcias had signed as church members required them to take their grievances to Scientology's internal arbitration, and he stayed the lawsuit. Since then, the two sides have been unable to agree on a three-member panel of arbitrators, with each side accusing the other of bad faith.
