TAMPA — In a forceful pronouncement of press and public rights, a federal magistrate has recommended that four sealed Church of Scientology case files be opened. Scientology lawyer Paul Johnson said the church "respectfully disagrees" with U.S. Magistrate Paul Game Jr.'s report, and will ask a federal judge to review the magistrate's findings. Until a federal judge rules, the files will be sealed, Johnson said. Game's ruling was released Aug. 15 and received by the St Petersburg Times on Tuesday. U.S. ...

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — A former member of the Church of Scientology is defying church lawyers and a federal judge by publicly alleging that the church held her captive and committed fraud by promising to cure her mental illness. Margery Wakefield, 41, is prohibited under a 1986 federal court settlement from speaking out against the cult, which has its spiritual headquarters in Clearwater. But she says she is ignoring the gag order so she can expose church practices and warn potential ...

TAMPA — You shouldn't be reading this story. The tale of Margery Wakefield vs. the Church of Scientology is supposed to be a secret. Church officials say so. So does a federal judge. In fact, Wakefield could go to jail for talking about the 12 years she spent as a member of the cult, which has its spiritual headquarters in Clearwater. Wakefield, 41, is talking anyway, braving the threats of Scientology lawyers and testing the patience of a U.S. district judge. ...

Margery Wakefield got $200,000 for settling a lawsuit against the Church of Scientology in 1986. In return, Scientology thought it had bought Ms. Wakefield's perpetual silence. She wasn't supposed to disclose the $200,000 figure. She wasn't supposed to talk about Scientology's lop-secret training techniques. And she wasn't supposed to make claims about alleged hypnosis and Satanism in the church. But Ms. Wakefield's been talking, going on Tampa Bay radio twice recently to discuss just these things. In so doing, she's testing ...

TAMPA — A newspaper waited too long before asking a judge to open court files that were sealed more than two years ago, attorneys for the Church of Scientology argued Wednesday. "It's unprecedented, this kind of wait," said new York lawyer Michael Lee Hertzberg. He was referring to the 26 months that went by after U.S. District Judge Elizabeth A. Kovachevich sealed four lawsuits that were settled with the church in 1986. But at a hearing before federal magistrate Paul Game ...

TAMPA — The St. Petersburg Times has asked a federal judge to unseal four court files pertaining to the Church of Scientology. The files, which otherwise would be available to the public, were sealed in 1986 by U.S. District Judge Elizabeth A. Kovachevich at the Scientologists' request. At the time the church was settling four lawsuits against it by former Clearwater Mayor Gabriel Cazares, among others, for undisclosed sums of money. The suits alleged that Scientologists invaded the plaintiffs' privacy and ...

CLEARWATER — A federal appeals court ruling doesn't say a word about the constitutionality of a city ordinance regulating charitable solicitations, basically sending it back to a lower court. The opinion issued Wednesday by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals states there hasn't been enough legal record developed by the U.S. District Court in Tampa to warrant a decision on the law's constitutional merits. "It's an interesting opinion because it doesn't decide anything," Scientology attorney Eric Lieberman said Thursday. "Basically ...
