Scientology wage claim dismissed - 2010-04-06
A federal judge dismissed part of a lawsuit brought against the Church of Scientology by a woman who alleged she worked 100-hour weeks for almost no pay for years while a member of Scientology's elite inner corps. U.S. District Judge Dale Fischer issued a written order that dismissed the wage claims portion of Claire Headley's lawsuit. He did not address allegations the church coerces members of the inner corps to get abortions and engages in forced labor. The church denies all the allegations.
