In court with Scientology - 2010-09-21
Currently, Dandar is representing the estate of Kyle Thomas Brennan, who killed himself in 2007 while visiting his father, a church member. Brennan's mother, the administrator of his estate, claims church members deprived her son of prescribed psychotropic medication and negligently left a gun in his reach.
According to the church, Dandar violated the terms of the McPherson settlement when he took on Brennan's mother as a client. Pinellas-Pasco Senior Circuit Judge Robert Beach agreed with the church and ordered Dandar off the Brennan case.
But when Dandar tried to withdraw, U.S. District Judge Steven Merryday, who is overseeing the federal case against the church, denied his request. His written order says neither Dandar nor his client wanted the lawyer removed.
