It is one thing to relate a first hand account of abuse. It is something completely different to demonstrate that the abuse related arose as a specific matter of policy or practices either mandated or encouraged by management.
Instances of abuse are legally actionable only against the abusive individuals involved. Management directive would need to be implicated in order to undermine the Co$ structure legally.

However, the institution can be held liable, especially in circumstances where the top executives were completely aware of the abuse. For instance, child labor laws have been violated - the institution is liable for those. The treatment of those in Davey Jones Locker (SP Hall) is an institutional liability, especially since it is impossible for such things to go down with high level execs without higher execs knowing about it. One of the individuals who has made it out can smack Davey the Dwarf with a sizeable lawsuit for HR violations, as well as the church given the complicity of everyone at Int.
According to the precepts of Scientology, Green on White, Red on White, and Flag Orders are senior to everyone. If there are contradicting Flag Orders, as in the case of the ban on children, those written by Hubbard would supercede those written by Int Execs. I bring this up within the context of the forced abortions. In other words, any action that is not taken to end Human Rights abuses given extant evidence that exists--in writing--of senior orders that could have ended abuses proves complicity of all individuals. Those orders also serve to protect the organization from liability, but not in light of massive complicity. My point being that it would depend on how the judge/jury defines organization. If they define the organization as an institution that is delimited by written orders, and not personnel, then Cof$ is not liable; if they define the organization as an institution defined by both written texts and personnel (who can interpret texts), then Cof$ is also liable. An attorney could explain this better.
