Scientology To Turn Over 18,000 Pages of Evidence to Laura DeCrescenzo on Tuesday - 2013-07-01
Scientology's motion for a protective order in Laura DeCrescenzo's forced-abortion lawsuit was denied in part today, and as a result the church's attorneys said in court that they will be turning over a compact disc with 18,000 pages of unredacted evidence to DeCrescenzo tomorrow.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ronald Sohigian did agree with the church that third-party names in the files should be removed. So he ordered the church to produce another set of the evidence with third-party names redacted within 30 days.
After appeals to the California and U.S. Supreme Courts failed, Scientology had no further way to delay turning over the documents, which Sohigian had ordered the church to fork over this spring in DeCrescenzo's four-year legal odyssey.
