City commissioners learned Monday that Clearwater's legal battle with the Church of Scientology has cost about $75,000 in the past nine months - triple the expense that had been projected by the city's lawyers.

Lawyers estimated last fall it would cost about $25,000 to fight the Scientologists' lawsuit up to the point of filing a motion that the suit be dismissed.

But attorneys for the Scientologists have scheduled several time-consuming motions and depositions that have driven up the city's legal costs, said Alan Zimmet, one of the lawyers representing the city in the case.
