US Supreme Court denies Valerie Haney; CA court gets letters on Scientology's 'neutrality' - 2021-10-05
We knew it was a longshot, but it was still disappointing to learn yesterday that the US Supreme Court was not interested in taking up Valerie Haney's petition alleging that Scientology's binding contract about "religious arbitration" is a violation of her religious rights.
That might have been a fascinating case for the court to hear, but we knew that the chances of her petition being chosen were very small. The court took on only a handful of new cases from the hundreds of petitions that were filed over the summer.
Valerie herself was unbowed.
