Judge warns of huge legal costs in Church of Scientology dispute - 2015-01-12
Scientologists Zabrina Collins and Michael O'Donnell have won High Court orders restraining former Scientologists Peter Griffiths and John McGhee from harassing, assaulting or intimidating them in anti-drugs and other work they do for their Church.
Griffiths, of Teeling Street, Ballina, Co Mayo, in turn has sued Collins, the daughter of wrongly convicted Co Donegal publican Frank Shortt for alleged defamation of character. Ms Collins' address was given as Parnell Square West, Dublin.
Judge Jacqueline Linnane today addressed all of the parties in the Circuit Civil Court, which is now handling the case, and told them the clock had already started ticking on a mounting legal bill both on High Court and Circuit Court costs.
