                                 Judge allows psychiatric evaluation for ex-Scientologist suing church

A judge Thursday issued a tentative ruling allowing a psychiatrist picked by the defense to evaluate a former Church of Scientology member who is suing the institution, alleging she was coerced to have an abortion at age 17.

Laura Ann DeCrescenzo also claims that, as a child, she was forced work long hours for the church’s elite Sea Org, which acts as an administrative unit......

                                       EEOC Sues Dynamic Medical Services, A WISE Company, for Religious Discrimination -
                                       

 Chiropractic Co. Forced Scientology On Workers, EEOC Says


The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission launched a suit in Florida federal court Wednesday alleging chiropractic medical practice Dynamic Medical Services Inc. forced its employees to practice Scientology and wrongfully fired at least two employees who complained about it.

The EEOC contends Dynamic, which has two clinics in South Florida, required its employees to take daily courses during which they participated in hours-long Scientology religious exercises or studied the writings of Church of Scientology International founder L. Ron Hubbard ...

                                PRESS RELEASE
5-9-13

EEOC Sues Dynamic Medical Services for Religious Discrimination

Link to the EEOC's site w/press release: http://www1.eeoc.gov/eeoc/newsroom/release/5-9-13.cfm

According to the EEOC's suit, the company required Norma Rodriguez, Maykel Ruz, Rommy Sanchez, Yanileydis Capote and other employees to spend at least half their work days in courses that involved Scientology religious practices, such as screaming at ashtrays or staring at someone for eight hours without moving. The company also instructed employees to attend courses at the Church of Scientology. Additionally, the company required Sanchez to undergo an "audit" by connecting herself to an "E-meter," which Scientologists believe is a religious artifact, and required her to undergo "purification" treatment at the Church of Scientology. According to the EEOC's suit, employees repeatedly asked not to attend the courses but were told it was a requirement of the job. In the cases of Rodriguez and Sanchez, when they refused to participate in Scientology religious practices and/or did not conform to Scientology religious beliefs, they were terminated.

                                            The complaint.

                                                        Libel-Proof Entity - Mike Rinder

    At 17:25 in this interview Mike Rinder mentions that the Church of Scientology is now probably a “Libel-Proof Entity”. This is in reference to the “Libel-Proof Plaintiff Doctrine” whereby a defendant loses grounds for libel once their general reputation reaches a certain low point in public opinion.

By Carolina Bolado
Law360, Miami (March 2, 2016, 8:49 PM ET) -- A Florida appeals court ruled Wednesday that a trial court did not automatically retain jurisdiction over a settlement between the Church of Scientology and an attorney after the case was dismissed, and said the church would have to file a new suit seeking to enforce the deal.

Florida's Second District Court of Appeal said the trial court did not have jurisdiction to entertain the Church of Scientology's motion to enforce a settlement with attorney Ken Dandar of Dandar & Dandar PA, who had filed a wrongful...

                                       Scientology church trial: the charges against the Scientology church inadmissable

 The Brussels correctional tribunal declared the charges against the Church of Scientology inadmissable a little before 1 pm on Friday.
The tribunal said the prosecution's case against it was incomplete, and that too many assumptions had been made regarding the accusations.

The International Church of Scientology’s European Bureau of Human Rights, the Belgian Church of Scientology, and 11 members were charged with organised crime, fraud, illegally practising medicine and not respecting the legislation on privacy. This was after a 20-year investigation, started in 1997.

The Belgian Church of Scientology and two members were also charged with fraud following the publication of unpaid job offers in 2007 and 2008.

                                          Case against Belgian Scientologists dropped
2016-04-26

Brussels - Belgian Scientologists vowed on Tuesday to "do more" in the community and pursue controversial anti-drugs programmes in particular after allegations that could have led to the religion being banned in Belgium were formally dropped.

In March a Belgian judge threw out charges including fraud, extortion and the illegal practice of medicine against 11 members of the celebrity-backed US church, ruling that the defendants had been targeted because of their religion.

The decision on Tuesday became "definitive" because Belgian prosecutors had failed to appeal, Pascal Vanderveeren, the lawyer for the Belgian branch of Scientology, told a press conference.

"There is enormous relief," Belgian Scientology Eric Roux told the press conference.

"We have been rehabilitated, we are Belgian citizens and we want to help our country, particularly by means of our preventative campaigns against drugs," Roux said.

"We will try to do more. We intend to develop, we have things to bring to the table.".....
