The U.S. Supreme Court yesterday refused to exempt the Church of Scientology of California from posting a bond of up to $60 million while the church appeals a Los Angeles jury award. The organization contends the bond payment will drive it into bankruptcy. Without comment, the high court rejected the Scientology case, which sought to void state law requiring the church to post bond while it appeals a $30 million damages award to former Scientologist Larry Wollersheim, who claimed the church ...

Why do I have to spend so much time defending religions I don't belong to? I didn't really want a scrapbook of columns sticking up for persecuted Jews, Evangelical Christians, Muslims, Taoists, Native American Shamanists, Moonies and Scientologists, among others. The question that troubles me most, though, is why do I have to defend them from our own government? The reason, of course, is that I don't want the First Amendment repealed. And a Los Angeles jury did just that July ...

A Los Angeles Superior Court jury Tuesday awarded $30 million in damages to a former member of the Church of Scientology who said the organization intentionally drove him to the edge of insanity and ruined him financially for criticizing the group. The 12-0 verdict in favor of Larry Wollersheim brought gasps from the Scientologists who packed Judge Ronald Swearinger's court-room, as they had throughout the bitterly contested five-month-long trial. Some sobbed. Wollersheim was awarded $5 million in compensatory damages and $25 ...
