The judge, his letters, and more proof that Scientology is snowing a federal court - 2016-07-20
(Judge James D. Whittemore)
A couple of new documents showed up recently in the court file of Luis and Rocio Garcia's federal fraud lawsuit against the Church of Scientology, and we thought you might want to hear about them.
As you may recall, the Garcias were told by the court to submit their complaints about being defrauded to Scientology's internal arbitration system, as was spelled out in contracts they had signed as church members. The Garcias had argued that Scientology's 'arbitration' was a sham that didn't really exist and had never actually been used in church history. But the court decided that a contract was a contract, and the Garcias had to take their beef to the church's internal justice system. The Garcias came back to the court earlier this year, however, complaining that Scientology had made it impossible to choose arbitrators. Scientology countered that it was the Garcias who were making it impossible to proceed.
