"I make things happen," said Minkow, who started his Reseda-based company while he was in the 10th grade at Cleveland High School and "too young to open a bank account." Minkow ...

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 The reason, of course, is that I don't want the First Amendment repealed.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 federal appeals court ruled Friday that the Church of Scientology's confidential teachings are not protected by California trade secrets law, dealing a blow to the organization's hard-fought campaign to block former members from operating rival churches where courses are offered at a fraction of the cost.

The ruling represents a second major setback in less ...

A Los Angeles Superior Court jury awarded $30 million to a former Scientologist, who claimed the church's religious practice of "auditing" caused him to suffer a nervous breakdown. Larry Wollersheim, 37, who was a member of the church for 11 years, was awarded $5 million in compensatory damages and $25 million in punitive damages by the 12-member jury. The trial started last February. "It's a tremendous verdict for human rights," said Leta Schlosser, Wollersheim's attorney. The Church of Scientology, she added, ...
