Only moments before Sadwick was scheduled to face a contempt-of-court hearing, Sadwick's attorney, William Plowman, told Circuit Judge John S. Andrews that his client was willing to talk, despite his contention that the questions violate Sadwick's constitutional rights. Prosecutors had asked Andrews to find Sadwick in civil contempt for refusing to ...

Once again The Globe and Mail has published a most one-sided series on Scientology (The Scientology Papers - Jan. 22 et seq). I hope you will show your usual journalistic fairness in preparing another series by a different writer which explores such matters as: why Scientology has enjoyed such a phenomenal growth rate; what persons who have received Scientology services say of those services; why the Church of Scientology has apparently resorted to clandestine activities such as infiltration and wiretapping; and ...

Toronto ON — I must admit, John Marshall's series The Scientology Papers (Jan. 22, et seq) were not pleasant reading for myself or other members of the Church. I would have hoped that among all the revelations he wrote of, some attempt to analyze the reasons for and causes of the action taken by the Church of Scientology in the United States would have been made. Apparently, the story behind the scenes is not good copy. But the background story is ...

Other accounts since then of clandestine operations by the cult in Canada are also supported by the files, submitted in court after being seized ...
