Ken Dandar in Federal Court Today - And Loses Again - 2012-12-07
UPDATE: JUDGE COVINGTON AGAIN DECLINES TO STEP IN ON KEN DANDAR'S BEHALF. More on our afternoon update below
Ken Dandar gets his second chance today to convince federal Judge Virginia Covington in Tampa, Florida that his civil rights are being violated by a conspiracy between Florida's state courts and the Church of Scientology.
Dandar is asking Covington to stop a proceeding in a Florida state court, where Scientology is asking retired Judge Crockett Farnell to award the church $1.1 million in sanctions against Dandar. At a hearing on November 19, Covington told Dandar she had no standing to stop what was happening in Farnell's court. Dandar then filed an amended complaint which included new details about what he alleges is a years-long conspiracy by Scientology to corrupt the state courts.
