KAMLOOPS - A former parishioner has filed a notice of civil claim in Kamloops Supreme Court against the Church of Scientology of British Columbia for “negligent misrepresentation” in counselling funds and extra payments.

In her claim filed April 29, Lorna Carleton states during her time as a parishioner for the church from November 1988 to July 2014 she signed up for pre-payments for 'counselling services.' Carleton argues the payments were supposed to be returned to her if she stopped participating in the services but didn't receive a refund after the church advised her she was no longer permitted to participate.

Carleton’s funds towards the church went towards buildings and the International Association of Scientologists. As part of her membership, Carleton said she made “extra payments" to the church by purchasing books, compact disks and promotional materials. She filed the claim after discovering the additional funds were not required but also contrary to pre-payment policy.

The plaintiff is asking for the church to return payments with interest and other relief.

A spokesperson for the Church of Scientology of British Columbia did not return comment by deadline.

None of the allegations have been proven in court.
