Scientology's latest filing in the Trout Run zoning fight: We bleed for all religions - 2015-12-13
The saga at Trout Run continues as Scientology's property arm produced another court filing and let loose with a whine of epic proportions.
We've been following developments in Frederick County, Maryland where Scientology tried a stealthy move to put one of its Narconon drug rehab facilities in a rustic location through an end-around of local zoning rules.
Scientology, through its property-buying front group, Social Betterment Properties International (SBPI), paid $4.85 million for a location known as Trout Run, a decaying fish camp that had stood in for Camp David on The West Wing. Although the parcel was not zoned for a drug rehab center, SBPI learned that if the property could be put on the county's list of historic places, it could get a special exception as a group home.
