A local lawyer and political consultant are hired to help break down barriers for Scientology. It was a sticky decision and everyone in the room knew it. Bennetta Slaughter, the charismatic businesswoman whose tireless committee work had impressed so many, was being nominated to the Clearwater Regional Chamber of Commerce board of directors. "Do we really want one on the board?" several asked. By "one" they meant: a Scientologist. Board members worried that the chamber's rank and file might quit in ...

To the disappointment of some outsiders, those mired in the Scientology case were ready for the draining episode to end. CLEARWATER — The recent settlement of the 7-year-old Lisa McPherson wrongful death lawsuit against the Church of Scientology was a shocker for many, seemingly coming out of nowhere. It wasn't a spur-of-the-moment decision at all, but rather a resolution that had been simmering more than six months in quiet negotiations at the St. Petersburg law offices of mediator Michael Keane. It ...

Jurors don't buy the church's argument that a lawyer involved in a wrongful death case owes it more than $2-million. CLEARWATER — A tiny smile creased Ken Dandar's face as a clerk read the first count of the jury verdict. Compensatory damages he owed the Church of Scientology: $4,500. Dandar knew then he had won. The grin widened and Dandar began to playfully pat his attorney, Luke Lirot, as the clerk read through the rest of the counts. The amount he ...

A lawyer involved in a wrongful death suit should pay more than $2-million, the church contends. CLEARWATER — Large and imposing, Church of Scientology attorney Samuel Rosen stood before a Pinellas County jury Tuesday, arms waving, voice booming. Pointing at Tampa lawyer Ken Dandar, he growled to jurors that Dandar had taken a "garden variety" wrongful death lawsuit and allowed a church critic to turn it into "a frontal attack on an entire religion." Now, Rosen said, Dandar must be punished. ...

Clearwater Village's developers envision 126 Mediterranean-style homes with a median cost of $450,000 to $500,000. CLEARWATER — Unicorns. Free lunches. Large tracts of undeveloped Clearwater land. None of those things exist, right? In fact, 24 vacant acres do exist in Clearwater, land that has been largely untouched since mules grazed there some 80 years ago. Developers snatched it up, of course. And then they thought about what to do with their blank canvas. Surrounded as it is by a church, low-income ...

Scientologists will let the trial "determine the ability to empanel an unbiased jury." CLEARWATER — Church of Scientology officials thought hard before making public a survey they commissioned that found widespread negative opinions about Scientology. The church then used the survey to argue that negative media reports had prejudiced Tampa Bay area residents so badly that the church could not get a fair trial in an upcoming civil case. The trial should be moved, they said. Church officials knew the survey ...
