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. ...

CLEARWATER — Complaints about the Church at Scientology unexpectedly surfaced again before the City Commission on Thursday, and some commissioners think they've heard enough. The commissioners two weeks ago presided over a stormy session in which a group of people spoke against the Scientologists, claiming the organisation is a cult. Scientologists denied those claims, and said they were offended by what they called attacks on their religion. On Thursday, commissioners heard a dialogue that was shorter, but similar. A Tampa couple, ...

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. ...

CLEARWATER — A judge has decided to stop the auction of Church of Scientology property until a court can decide whether the church has to pay the taxes. The church and the Pinellas County property appraiser have disagreed for years about whether the church, which has its spiritual headquarters in Clearwater, must pay taxes on the property it owns in the county. The property appraiser's office has sent the church tax bills every year and the church has refused to pay ...

[...] Wakefield now repudiates the agreement, claiming she was pressured into signing it, and aggressively seeks forums — in the press, on radio shows, in churches — to denounce Scientology. "I don't care what the legal repercussions are at this point," she told the Tribune recently. "I want people in this area to know what Scientology is about. I want them to know it's a satanic cult." The church has been the center of controversy since it was founded by science ...

Seattle lawyer Walter D. Palmer says it was strictly "a business decision." But a result of an investment he made with business associate John G. Ritchie could result in a forced sale of Church of Scientology buildings in downtown Clearwater. And holding the auction for the men would be the Pinellas County government. Scientology lawyer Paul B. Johnson said he will seek an injunction to stop the sale. The proposed auction, which Palmer suggested two weeks ago, relates to Scientology's annual ...

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court ruled Monday that taxpayers can't deduct the cost of Church of Scientology courses and counseling. In Clearwater, where the church has its headquarters and is locked in legal battles with the city and the Pinellas County Property Appraiser, local officials were encouraged by the ruling. The 5-2 ruling written by Justice Thurgood Marshall said that money paid to the church by Scientologists for training and a form of counseling called "auditing" are more like fees for ...

A Pinellas judge presiding over a Scientology tax dispute has removed himself from the case because of a newspaper report that cited a real estate transaction between the judge and the Church of Scientology. The St. Petersburg Times reported in December that Circuit Judge Howard P. Rives, who was presiding over a lawsuit concerning taxes on Scientology properties, sold one of those properties to the church in 1979.

CLEARWATER — Part of its cabin had to be removed to make the journey manageable. But the Diana was on the move again Friday, this time bound for a Tarpon Springs marina. The Church of Scientology relocated its yacht dubbed Diana after obtaining a civil court order to take possession of the 53-foot ketch, valued at $40,000. The Scientologists contend in a lawsuit that a Clearwater boat repair-restoration shop kept the vessel "without reason" and planned to destroy, conceal or take ...
