Ken Dandar could use a cool million in his fight against Scientology - 2014-07-11
The last time we spoke with Florida attorney Ken Dandar, he had put on a brave face about what appeared to be another setback in court. Federal Judge Virginia M. Hernandez Covington had refused, again, to intervene with a state court that had saddled Dandar with a $1 million judgment, payable to the Church of Scientology.
Dandar told us, however, that he was encouraged that Covington had allowed part of his lawsuit against Scientology and the lower court to stand. "She denied their motion to dismiss. That's huge. She recognizes the federal rights in this case, but she's reluctant to interfere with the state courts," he told us.
Our sources tell us that the situation is worse than he let on. And after another hearing before retired state judge Crockett Farnell on August 6, things could become downright untenable for Dandar.
