Scientologists Take Md. Zoning Spat to Court - 2016-03-28
Blaming Scientology opponents for blocking its opening of a Narconon drug-rehabilitation center, the church's real estate arm filed suit for public records.
Filed earlier this month in Frederick County Circuit Court, the Church of Scientology affiliate Social Betterment Properties International says it has had its eye trained for at least three years on converting "Trout Run," a piece of property at 12929 Catoctin Hollow Road, into a Narconon facility.
A 40-acre property near Thurmont, Md., Trout Run lies in the Cunningham Falls State Park, just 7 miles from the famed presidential retreat Camp David.
