Laura DeCrescenzo, on eve of crucial hearing, explains Scientology for new judge - 2016-02-25
Laura DeCrescenzo's legal team filed its latest brief in advance of a crucial hearing, and we have the document for you. Laura's forced-abortion lawsuit against the Church of Scientology is almost seven years old now, and trial dates have been set a couple of times. But there's a final hurdle that she needs to get past, a motion for summary judgment that the church filed that will be considered on March 7.
The hearing was supposed to happen in November, but Judge Rolf Treu, who had inherited the case after Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ronald Sohigian retired, seemed to panic just the day before the hearing and asked both sides to submit new briefs that would more plainly explain the issue.
Hey, we know it's a complex case, but that just seemed like a complete amateur move to us. And now, just a couple of weeks before this crucial hearing, we've learned that Treu is off the case and it's now in the court of Judge John P. Doyle, who has to do a lot of reading, and quick.
