    Delighted for you AMA. It's shit you had to suffer being arrested in the first place, but your compensation is being able to show the Cult isn't able to make false charges stick.

    Wonderful news, AMA2. Another cult failure, another chip in its foundation.

    Great news! BTW, I think you mean Tom Dandar, not Tim. [My mistake; I think Tim is Tom's son?] And for anyone else interested, an "information" in criminal procedure is basically an "indictment," except only a grand jury can indict. When the prosecution "indicts" they are said to have returned an "information." It's antiquated legalese and extra confusing because "information" has a more familiar usage.

    Congrats AMA2 and a big thank you to your lawyers.

    A question for Tikk: I understand that legally speaking, everyone has a right to their protections under the law and each situation needs to be assessed on its merits; I agree with this. But overall, do you think scientology's shenanigans are wearing thin in the legal community?

    Good question and the answer is Yes and No. Every court room is different, so it's not as if the legal community en masse has 'had it up to here' with Scientology (and I'm not clear what they could do about it if they actually were). They're mostly aware of its reputation as litigious or 'nasty' but lots of organizations are litigious. In a lot of ways there's nothing especially outrageous about Scientology's legal tactics because they're routinely employed elsewhere in high-end legal warfare. The difference is that Scientology spends lots of money to ruin individuals who can't really match them dollar for dollar. There nearest parallel scenario is the RIAA going after supposed illegal music/movie downloaders. If the 'legal community' hears about a particular Scientology horror story I think it's just another horror story to them, but most are aware of their reputation and it isn't good.

    They remind me of certain situations with the tobacco industry, in that way.

    Could you use more donations for your legal expenses?

    Congratulations AMA! It's beer time here in Europe, here's to you!

    Eh Tikk, for those of us whose English is a second language, would you try one more?

    Keep in mind that CoS will still count this as a win.
    • Using police and courts to hassle a protestor.
    • The aggravation and expense of getting a lawyer, jumping through legal hoops and delay, delay...
    • They will continue to talk about how a protestor was arrested and won't mention that the charges were dropped.
    Any expenses of their own (small because it was on the public dime) will just be regged from the IAS.

    When the police charge you with a crime it's actually essentially a proposal, which the prosecutor argues before a grand jury, which deliberates alone as to whether probable cause existed for the charge, and if so, returns an indictment, and a criminal case is subsequently initiated against you. Less serious crimes do not require a grand jury, so the prosecutor's proposal of the charges is called an information (instead of an indictment).

    Some states use grand juries for all crimes (e.g., NY -- I once served on a month-long grand jury); some states use grand juries for serious crimes only (e.g., FL); and a few states have done away with grand juries altogether (I think PA).
