CSRT isn't a California corporation, it's a trust which at one point in time listed a California address; but which claims a more recent Florida residence. I'm only pointing this out because many people here seem hung up on CSRT's old California address. Whatever relevance this holds is negligible, in my opinion, because again, a trust's residence is determined by its members addresses. Per the relevant SCOTUS case law, even if CSRT continued to claim a California address in its mailings, if all its members/trustees were in Florida diversity would not be broken. But again, only Glen Stilo's trusteeship was potentially ascertainable by publicly available information in January 2013, so even though Babbitt misread how he should have pled subject matter jurisdiction (he too presumed CSRT was a corporation), the information necessary for him to properly ascertain CSRT's true character was not available. Because of that fact, I think the court will give him the benefit of the doubt in any sanctions/fees motion. I'm not at all hopeful that the case will remain in federal court but I believe there's a better than even chance that he can stick Scientology for much of the legal costs to date. And I would guess they'll eventually refile in FL state (Pinellas Cty) and ask that court to accept the federal court's findings and determinations on the previously filed motions, so as to avoid having to truly restart from square one. If it's refiled in California none of the motion practice would be immediately relevant b/c the Complaint would have to be entirely redrafted pursuant to California state statutes and common law. There may be advantages or disadvantages to filing in California as opposed to Florida I'm not aware of without heavy, unpaid research, other than the obvious factor we've already pointed out, that Pinellas County is Scientology's home court.
