Sued by former member

1 Oct, 2014

Robert Dietz, a former member of the Church of Scientology Portland, sues the Church to get back $30,340 he prepaid for future religious education. From the lawsuit:

In order to advance within the Church of Scientology organization, members are required and encouraged to purchase various training packages, products, and counseling services from the Church. Plaintiff was encouraged by the Church to prepay for the Church’s goods and services by placing funds on deposit with the local organization, on the understanding and agreement that any such funds not used would be returned to plaintiff should he decide to forgo further offerings by the Church pursuant to longstanding Church policy.
