Ken Dandar gets another day in court after his $1 million Scientology judgment - 2014-05-03
Please make sure you saw last night's big news about the Garcia lawsuit; another judge has denied a Scientology motion in a major lawsuit. Now, on to today's news...
One of our legal helpers noticed that Florida attorney Ken Dandar — who was recently hit by Scientology with a $1 million state court judgment in a bizarre legal case — has a hearing set in his federal lawsuit which he's hoping will put the kibosh on the state court result. Confusing? You bet.
Anyway, the docket in his federal case indicates that he'll get a chance before Judge Virginia M. Hernandez Covington on May 19 at 10 am in Tampa Courtroom 14B. The parties, notes the docket, should be ready to talk about "the potential applicability of Younger abstention in light of the final judgment recently entered in the relevant state court proceedings — as well as any potential mootness issues." (Emphasis ours.)
