VALERIE HANEY DENIED AGAIN: State supreme court won't hear case - 2020-12-11
The California state supreme court has turned down Valerie Haney's request to review a lower court's ruling, and so she's once again back where she started: She faces going through Scientology "religious arbitration" before she can appeal the order that denied her the right to a trial in her lawsuit against the church and its leader, David Miscavige.
We've previously described to you how our litigation expert has been pretty critical of how Valerie's lawsuit has been handled, which just lost another legal longshot. Our expert told us the odds that the state supreme court would take up the case were exceedingly slim.
Scientology predictably trashed Valerie's petition to the supreme court, agreeing with an appellate court that Valerie's team simply waited too long before seeking a writ of mandate.
