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.

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, ...

A Los Angeles Superior Court jury Tuesday awarded $30 million in damages to a former member of the Church of Scientology who said the organization intentionally drove him to the edge of insanity and ruined him financially for criticizing the group. The 12-0 verdict in favor of Larry Wollersheim brought gasps from the Scientologists who packed Judge Ronald Swearinger's court-room, as they had throughout the bitterly contested five-month-long trial. Some sobbed. Wollersheim was awarded $5 million in compensatory damages and $25 ...

Scientology attorneys have argued that disclosure of the materials is a violation of the group's ...

Cooley, a lawyer for the group, in arguments before Multnomah County Circuit Judge Donald H. Londer. Cooley also contended ...
