In what appears to be a pretty unusual turn of events, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Steven Kleifield, after hearing Scientology's argument on November 6 about why it should be able to force Danny Masterson's rape accusers into "religious arbitration," has decided to erase that hearing as if it never happened.

In a new two-page order, Judge Kleifield expresses doubts that Scientology can force former Scientologists into arbitration, and has asked the church's attorneys to submit new filings answering his specific questions about how Scientology's scheme fits under federal law. He set a new hearing for December 18 to make a ruling on the answers they submit.

Um, wow!
