New in court docs: Scientology bashes victims' rights group, trashes Mike Rinder - 2020-10-02
Last week, we reported that Valerie Haney had filed a petition with a California appellate court, asking for a writ so she could appeal the ruling by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge who derailed her lawsuit in favor of Scientology's internal "religious arbitration."
Valerie had told us that she was against the idea of submitting to what is essentially a religious ritual in a church she no longer belongs to, and now she wants an opportunity to argue that before an appeals court.
However, at this stage she can only get that appeal if she is granted the writ, which rarely happens. But bolstering her chances are a couple of "friend of the court" letters (amicus curiae briefs) filed by two victims' right groups that are urging the California 2nd Appellate District to give Valerie an appeal.
