Judge in Laura DeCrescenzo's case retires, Scientology objects to his replacement - 2014-03-11
That's directly affecting Laura DeCrescenzo, who went through so much last year to get her forced-abortion lawsuit against the Church of Scientology through several appeals and then a big summary judgment hearing before Sohigian in October.
Those of you who were with us as we reported that hearing live from Sohigian's courtroom know that the judge stunned us with his detailed support for the facts in DeCrescenzo's testimony. He then set a date early in 2015 for trial. And now, he's walking away, and a new judge will have to learn the case from scratch.
