"Fred Haseney has entered into a settlement agreement, and he will be continuing his First Amendment activity around Big Blue," says attorney Graham Berry, explaining why there will not be a court hearing today over a Scientology lawyer's request for a restraining order against Haseney that accused him of stalking a Scientology employee.

For months, Haseney has been documenting Scientology activities with his camera, particularly Scientology's attempts to "body route" new people into its L.A. facilities. A former Scientologist himself, Haseney told us that he had decided to leave the church after reading pages from this website. And his activities were not popular with the church. In May, Scientology vice president Janet Weiland visited the transitional home where Haseney lived (he's been out of a permanent job since 2009), and tried to get the Baptist pastor who runs it to convince Haseney to stop his photography sessions. The pastor refused.
