MASTERSON ACCUSERS PETITION APPELLATE COURT: Seeking to overturn ‘arbitration’ ruling

[Chrissie Carnell Bixler and Danny Masterson]

As expected, four former Scientologists suing Danny Masterson and the Church of Scientology filed a petition yesterday with California’s 2nd Appellate District, asking the court to reverse a December 30 ruling by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Steven Kleifield that denied them a right to trial and forced their case into Scientology’s internal “religious arbitration.”

Scientology’s attorneys convinced Judge Kleifield that contracts signed by the four former Scientologists obliged them to take their grievances to arbitration rather than to court.

The petition will need to convince the appellate court that an extraordinary situation exists that calls for intervening in the lawsuit and reversing Kleifield’s ruling. But the appeals court is under no obligation to take up the matter and in fact such petitions are not commonly granted.~~~READ MORE

- Yeah, but before shooting, one must aim.
- Well, not shooting means always missing.

I need to stop arguing with myself, least it would denote insanity.
