On April 20, Scientology will attempt to convince a Miami judge that a woman who says she was sexually molested while working as a child in its churches has no right to sue in court, but should be required to take her complaints to an internal "religious arbitration" panel made up exclusively of Church of Scientology members.

Twice before, Scientology has successfully convinced courts that its former members are obligated to take their grievances to religious arbitration: first, in the case of fraud claims raised by a California couple, and more recently in the case of Leah Remini's assistant, Valerie Haney, who says she was held against her will while working in the Sea Org, and then was subjected to stalking and slander for coming forward with her story.

But can Scientology also convince a court that a woman with child molestation claims is merely another religious contract dispute?
