    In July 2013 the Underground Bunker first broke the news that Leah Remini had defected from the Church of Scientology. Now, we’ve learned that within the last year, Remini has been in talks to join a federal fraud lawsuit seeking refunds for former Scientology members, according to a sworn deposition.

    Does this mean I can get a full refund?

    IANAL, but I'd guess that you might be able to get at least some of it back, but you may need the assistance of a good, qualified lawyer.

    So what ever became of the Wollersheim case. Did COS ever pay? Its been years since I last cared about what was going on with COS.

    During the 80's and 90's the CoS would insist "Not one thin dime for Wollersheim".

    But they ended up paying him 86,000,000 dimes. :)

    There's a brief summary of what transpired over here along with some links to media accounts:

    OK, so I didn't Google it because I wanted to see it here because it's relevant and I'm lazy. An 8.6+ million dollar payout should have any law firm eager to take up such a case as Remini's on contingency. Why hasn't this happened more often? What makes DM think his lawyers could ever defend Scientology? And most importantly, WHERE'S MY 8 MILLION DOLLARS?
