Scientology wanted millions, gets $4,500 - 2003-08-21
CLEARWATER - A tiny smile creased Ken Dandar's face as a clerk read the first count of the jury verdict.
Compensatory damages he owed the Church of Scientology: $4,500.
Dandar knew then he had won.
The grin widened and Dandar began to playfully pat his attorney, Luke Lirot, as the clerk read through the rest of the counts.
The amount he was obligated to pay the church in punitive damages: zero.
